10 AM

Running race 1:04:00 [3] 8.0 mi (8:00 / mi)

Grim Challenge - Ridiculous amounts of ponds to wade through. Sort of a cross between running and swimming really, and very very cold :-)
Couldn't see what was under the water, so I was running along a ridge but I missed my footing, fell off it, and embarrassingly managed to submerge myself entirely. Carried on a bit soggier than before, but oblivious to my poor knee. Look down, blood everywhere, panic, have to finish the race (stupid), off to A&E.
Finished 18th woman, and about 200th overall out of something like 3000 people though - I don't think the roadrunners in their trainers were loving the hills and mud quite so much!
Several stitches later and I can't bend my knee anymore :( Since I can't walk or even put my own shoe on I think training and XC will annoyingly have to wait for at least a week. I think it's the bruising more than anything that's sore.
Quite annoyed since I loved the race and was really getting to enjoy my running again. Oh well, such is life.

(rest day)

Really tired. Note to self - attackpoint is not a competition, you've only been training for 3 months, it's okay to chill out :)
