Promised Vendula I wouldn't run today.
Beaut day so eventually dragged myself out for a spin. Kine opted for indoor cycling, stating that it was too cold outside and warning me that my butt and fingers would freeze.
For the record, my butt was toasty and warm (enough insulation there ;) And my fingers can still type on this keyboard. Which is a shame really, cos now I'll have to work this week...

Wasn't hugely motivated to begin with but managed to get myself in some kind of semi race mindset by the start. Survived 50m into the forest until I put my foot down a hole in rocks and took a chunk out of my heel. Absolute fricken agony.
Actually, the race went ok. I was a bit with direction on 1 and 2 (blame the heel? ;) The long leg 5-6 was the main post race topic of discussion. I think I actually did it pretty well, just a little less fast than Sabine and Kine. Unfortunately I blew the good long leg by making mistakes on the following 7 and 8 :/ Was relatively smooth from there to the finish, with my once-per-race stuck-knee-deep-in-marsh moment(s) happening en route to 12 today. Only took 3-4s to get out this time.
Was worried to find what state my heel would be in when I took my sock off. Was expecting a chunk of flesh to be hanging off or something. Don't know if I was disappointed or relieved to find it was a pathetic little cut. But now I realise, it looks pathetic cos it's right on the bone - there isn't any flesh there to be hanging off. Anyway, point is: it hurts.
So a reasonable run. Disappointed to turn out 4 minutes behind Sabine, and no idea how the heck Andrine was 6 minutes faster than me. Maybe I wasn't moving as fast through the terrain as I thought!
