Trail race race (Chichester parkrun) 23:02  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.
