Didn't think it was possible...

to run slower than I did in the first race of the handicap series. And the sad thing is that through the run I thought I was going quicker. It certainly felt like I was putting in more effort than last time. I actually can't believe I was slower - and by 30 seconds or more (I can't remember my actual time from the last race down to the exact second but I'm sure it was in the first part of the minute whereas this time it was towards the back end). Never has the phrase 'ARSE' been more apt. At least my longer, endurance based runs seem to be improving and I'm still buzzing from Saturday's race but I do miss a bit of the old speed...
