Warming up my ankles weren't enjoying the tape and generally feeling a bit sore. Wanted to race because it was similar length to next weekend. So, tried to start hard and just see it out, but ankles weren't budging - just very weak, uncomfortable and getting beaten around by the rough-ish forest.
Wasn't concentrating on the map, just trying to plough on. Had a wee shocker on the 2nd. At the 5th control I decided I wasn't really doing much good, and the ankles were quite sore, so just jogged home.

WD with Sarah for a bit, and a little more to try and do something with the legs.
Barefoot, and they felt pretty fine once out of the terrain.
Had Physio appointment.
Very productive. Have set of specific stretches & strength exercises to go through once or twice daily for the next while. Also penned out return to running training plan for the next few weeks, which I will aim to follow closely.
In terms of the weekend's results; I suppose a bit dissapointed with regard to selection races. Bit unfortunate maybe, but shape was quite alright considering the injuries. Should be very doable to get back to shape.
The reality is I would like a middle or relay place. Not fast enough for sprint, or long. But will see how things play out over the next few weeks.
