SOL3 Drumlanrig. Short Brown: 8.3km, 280m climb. Usual slow start, dropped half a minute on each of the first three. Got into the swing of things then and was working pretty well until I tweaked my ankle on an uneven track shortly after leaving number 8. Lost a minute and a half hobbling and taking a round the houses route to 9, then was moving poorly for the next 20 minutes until I hit the open and finally managed to stretch out. Surprised to be 2nd, only 2m20 down on Dave; without my bad ankle I'd have been maybe 3 minutes faster.
Beccy twisted her ankle in exactly the same way, as did Caspian - must be a lesson in there somewhere. On the positive side, my back was great, L knee OK, it was a gorgeous day, and I scarfed half of Will's burger nom nom nom. TRIMP 163.3.

Saturday morning LSD on the GO - 2hrs maybe equivalent to a 15 mile run. A bit cool to start. Felt fine until the 90 minute mark then got progressively more tired - legs gone before 2 hours. That's what you get when you do no stamina work over winter. TRIMP 250.9.

JK Relay, Senior Men leg 2 - 5.1km. Quite chuffed with this effort. Had a very solid run by my modest standards: moving well (very surprised at how well the legs were working after yesterday) and with no notable errors to report. Third fastest on the leg, I managed to extend Roger's 8s lead to nearly 4 minutes, not that I knew at the time. Alas I also didn't know that Rog had mispunched on leg 1; but I'm not too disappointed, because I still had a good day to finish off the weekend. TRIMP 92.2.
Very happy with how the body held together this weekend. Just the swollen L knee after the long race, legs still in good shape for the relay, and no back issues at all until the predictable aches during the 9 hour drive home after racing.
