Reflections on the 6 Days:
Not sure if these are 'official' or not, but they show Alistair and I tied for 1st place. Not what was announced at the prizegiving...
Either way I can't help being a little disappointed with my performances. 2 great runs (Day 3 and 5), otherwise pretty mediocre. Al definitely deserved the overall win for a number of reasons:
1. He was more consistent over the week.
2. I benefited from the mangling of the Day 2 results (and my extra late start).
3. He ran Day 4 and then did Day 5 on his own, while I got lucky with a gamble route choice through the dark green.
However I'd have taken 2nd overall at the beginning of the week.
My Achilles is still not right. I've been taking 2 ibuprofen before running every day and the soreness has increased as each day has gone on. I now need to give it a chance to settle down properly.
