Run 41:00 [3] 8.0 km (5:08 / km)

Recovery run from the Zurich youth hostel. The plan was to go along the lake but there isn't a path along the lake so it was mainly a road run. Stiff as expected early on but loosened reasonably as it went on; at no stage was it stellar but it could have been worse and will do me some good. Very nice morning for it.

WMOC is a place you see some people you haven't seen for a long time but one unexpected sighting yesterday was Eniko Fey, who I hadn't seen since 1996 (she now lives in Switzerland and her father was running). As those of a certain age will recall, she won three gold medals at JWOC 1996 but injured her knee in the closing stages of the relay, and has never run seriously since - one of the great lost talents of orienteering history. The most unfortunate thing about it is that it sounds like it was the sort of ACL tear that happens on an AFL field every second week; if she'd done it in Melbourne, reputedly the best place in the world to have your knee rebuilt, she would have been out for 12 months and then would most likely have made a full recovery. (It sounds like by the time it was properly diagnosed it was already too badly damaged to be able to be fixed properly),
