Muizenberg trail race. As good as I could've expected. Feeling pretty slow and lacking an extra gear, but really can't complain too much given the last few months. Ankle still feeling quite fragile, especially on the sections of road+rough rocky descents, so just trying to be a bit careful on those.
Started out with Shaff. Siviwe and Jarryd going off the front, Jarryd gradually increased the gap as we went, but caught siviwe at the top of the 2nd climb, him struggling with some back issues. Knew there wasn't really any chance of catching/being caught after this, so just tried to keep the effort reasonable until the end. Finished still feeling fairly strong, but also don't think I would've been able to push harder, just go a bit longer. (Picking up the Ryan Sandes diesel engine thing...)
3min behind Jarryd (though he lost a min or so on a wrong turn), and about 10min ahead of Shaff.
