Trail race race (Chichester parkrun) 23:02 [5] 5.0 km (4:36 / km) +60m 4:21 / km

Back felt significantly 'different' following ibuprofen-free recovery from spasm on Wednesday morning. I was optimistic. Blasted out the start but couldn't keep up with Lu. I was with people who usually leave me for dead though, and, most importantly, I felt much better. Performance comparison impossible, unfortunately, as conditions were terrible. Absolute mudbath. Course was altered to avoid 'ponds' at the bottom, but top of park was just as bad. There were millions of tail enders too and they really got in the way. Reasons to be cheerful: felt much more comfortable on fast metalled downhill, could still run/jog after the finish, and I'm not entered for Winter Tanners tomorrow.

Back went into spasm in the night when I got up for the loo. Took an ibuprofen and got back into bed. Thought I might struggle to get to work but managed socks and wash ok so went for it. Couldn't have cycled Thursday either but things were a bit better and by the evening I could manage some gentle core exercises. Actually felt slightly better aligned. Cycling would have been possible on Friday but I decided to stick with core workout and give myself a chance of parkrun. Had almost volunteered instead this week but luckily the roster was full.
