Urgh - feel awful now....rest day!
Emergency visit to the physio this morning after something went wrong last Friday on the treadmill. Strained hamstring, no running aloud again, back next week for a checkup.
Seriously starting to get a bit annoyed now, I'd only managed 3 outside runs, longest being 8.5 miles.
Oh not aloud to cycle until Friday, then it must be gentle and stopped immediately if it aggravates my leg.
Cold, wet, cold, peaty, cold, windy
Did I mention cold?
Whilst waiting for the start, I was shivering, to the point of uncontrollability, I could only stop by leaning against the quarry side!
A slow start. a slow first mile, thus I finished well down, slowest ever.....
The provisionals state 330 finishers
1st = 43:52
Me = 221st @ 1.14:36

Eighth day of a strapped thigh. No running for me.
Missed my Saturday run so only 29.7km this week
Quick update from me.
9 1/2 muddy off road miles on Sunday, mostly in rain and drizzle. Legs hurt but the mud was fun
Late getting home from work (bl00dy traffic) so just 4 miles this evening, cold but kept myself warm by upping the pace to (a fast for me) 7:24 min/mi.
0C last night, chest and neck frozen when I got home.
13.1km at 5:47/km
Decided to start pausing strava when the group stands about waiting for people to catch up so I get a clearer view of the actual run pace.
I look better than I felt, on the last steep/wet/long/muddy hill
You forgot your race number, and your all black ninja outfit doesn't work in daylight.
Ahh, you were distracted by the girls
I had number '73'
Not my photo, but it features me, helping the 2 girls behind me, at Ponden Clough stream cross, at last Sundays 'Stanbury Splash'
On my crossing;
