(injured) shoes: NB Fresh Foam Zante v2

Easy jog on grass ... when suddenly a paralyzing pain shot up through my spine. My neck and upper back immediately blocked and each step was pain. A bit frightened at the beginning but then realised this happened to me already twice in the last two years and is most probably just an accumulation of not ideal work desk set up and lack of maintenance... Booked a chiro right away for Monday and fingers cross he'll fix me up.

Summer Series anniversary cup in Blackman park

Great fun going head to head against a pretty stacked field. Unfortunately I approached it as normal summer series where you usually don't have to think too much and just run. Obviously not quite the case here so for most of the course I was in a mode mistake - catching up - mistake - catching up. When I finally broke away and was going from #12 in a comfortable lead, while I was reading the map and planning the last three controls, I managed to run off the trail and ended up going over the hill and bushbashing back down which cost me maybe 50sec? Toby punched #13 10sec ahead of me and I didn't find the legs, motivation (also didn't want to risk twisting my ankle 10 days before Tarawera) so finished 2nd, 5sec down on Toby.

Maybe 3 min worth of mistakes on a relatively simple 30 min course? Ridiculous.

It was good fun though and glad ankles etc survived. No I can start tapering. Bring it on Tarawera!

Run hills 40:00 [3] 6.15 km (6:30 / km) +360m 5:02 / km
shoes: NB Fresh Foam Zante v2

2x10 moo stairs. Wanted to go reasonably fast but in even splits. Did 8:24, 8:26 so ticked both boxes. Felt a lot easier than in previous weeks which is a good sign I guess. No more stairs before Tarawera
