Street-O in Greenwich/Blackheath. Plan was to climb at the beginning and then basically stay high, enjoy running around Greenwich Park and Blackheath, and then drop down and around Greenwich Maritime back to the start. Gait felt a bit awkward, put that down to tiredness and stuck to the grass more than tarmac. Views from Greenwich Park over to the Isle of Dogs were fantastic and it was a pleasure running around. Unfortunately after I had cleared Blackheath and dropped down, shin splints started to appear. Quite quickly decided to jack in the race, to maximise chances of recovery for Porto at the weekend. Had a long walk back from the Lewisham border to Maze Hill, through the bottom of Greenwich Park, so got back nine minutes late and missed a lot of high-scoring controls near the end of my planned route.
Nice pub though and good map.
Looking back at my AP injury log
, they generally take a couple of weeks to clear up, however i think they are very minor this time (didn't feel them walking to lunch the day after) so maybe I'll be OK for Saturday - we'll see.
And note to self - do not do road running two days in a row. Ever.
