Felt pretty terrible - not terrible but not good.
5x6mins but didn’t have a 4th or 5th in me. Was feeling okay but then missed the start of the 4th by a second or two and then couldn’t relocate with the boys - checked my watch, slow, lost the mental battle and went home. To be fair hadn’t been feeling very good anyhow but yeah.
Had been feeling an illness coming on in the build up to Saturday but then ran okay. Woke Sunday with a sore throat but thought I’d be cool. Monday felt alright just grim in the nose and today was worse in the nose but okay. Don’t think I drank enough but also think I’m basically better - will run easy and reassess on Saturday for a session.

Bonked on the way home so probably a shout to bail. Ended up feeling dizzy and walking... dehydrated?
Scranned a lot and am now feeling better about it all. Should be good from here.

Yaaaldi biggest Vdot score on AP.
Had been getting my classic pre race I care about vibes all week in that I was feeling ill, rough, tired the lot. But, illness is just a midset right, legs felt good to go.
Pretty savage, horrible little race - 12mins of pain. Still, started steady, not wanting to burn the torches to early - felt good and strong and was moving through nicely all the way till the final km - there it hurt and I started to let people past me, losing the little mental battles pretty easily.
Joe came past me with 400 or so m to go, didn't realise it was so close to the end and was all for further engaging the bonk gear and cruising home on safety but turned the corner, the finish is well close, wait nah lets get him back, put a cheeky sprint in and got. Nice one.
