17/18 Ranking Event 3, Väsby OK middle Skråmstalund, H21 5.2km (29/47)
Important race today, well, more than usual. H21 club selection for next Sunday's relay champs. Not that I had any chance of getting into the first team, those unofficially pre-selected weren't even running H21, two weren't even there today. Instead a chance to make sure I wouldn't get dropped down into any potential 3rd team or a H120 team (heaven forbid, it's not like I am H40 :).
Not a great race. I made mistakes at 1, 4 and 6, after that I realised that I did in fact have a slight cold and couldn't maintain the effort. I'm not sure if it was the same cold I quickly fought off earlier this week or a completely new one (Hugo has in fact caught another). However I will just assume it is the same one, it's much too early in the Autumn/Winter to be counting 2 colds already. Otherwise I would have no chance of doing better than last year.
So not the best, 3.5mins time loss and unable to run the whole race at maximum. Unsurprisingly I didn't really enjoy myself either. I did however manage to beat the other 2 Söders runners so job done.
