Easter Long Distance
Tough day at the office, pretty weak performance physically so disappointing. Henry caught 4min on me a lot sooner than I would've expected and I tried to sit in for a coupe of ks but it just wasn't happening. A few small mistakes scattered throughout but mainly just not feeling strong, then with about a third to go I knew it really wasn't to be so pretty much just jogged the rest. Not a nice feeling giving in like that but looking back now it probably was sensible.

I think I was so far off the pace due to a mix of losing a bit of long-distance shape over the last month, inexperience at big-boy longs and not having my training focused on long distance this year. I guess some learning generated and I'm very fired up for the rest of the week now so not the end of the world.

Easter Sprint
One of those runs that didn't feel amazing but was solid enough, especially on such a techy course. A few hesitations and maybe a couple of small route choice things but I think everyone had things like that today. Fair play to Henry, couldn't have made up that gap but happy to end up with second from a decent run.

NOL sprint relay
Aislinn pulled out an mvp effort to give us a big lead over the main competition after leg 1 then Bruce held it nicely so I had a pretty easy job on leg 3. Just put in a steady effort, keeping it clean and making sure I didn't stack on any of the slippy as corners. Route choices were fairly straight forward but a decent enough area that it was still fun (although not quite sure why the public race seemed to go into the best bit of the map but we didn't). Tash finished things off nicely to get the w and knee didn't really trouble me so happy days.

Running 22:26 [2] 5.13 km (4:22 / km)
shoes: NB 1080

Big win. Still slightly noticeable but not painful and if anything got better as I went on. Mainly just on grass but tried a couple of strides and a little bit of hard surfaces near the end which were fine as well.

Also went to physio after and got the tick of approval for easter (although there's still the potential that I might not do one/both of the sprints depending on how things pull up in the next couple of days).
