I was hoping to improve on my seasons/years best but I was also aware that I had curtailed my track session's
a few weeks ago and that the chance of running sub 9m18 would be slim. Conditions were very humid but no wind! I was told a Tri guy called Carl Gufesston (30 years old, no Lycra! and he had hair on his legs!!) would be running 9m15 and was looking forward to some company!
Perhaps I was a little too on edge and blasted out a 69/70 first lap and could not recover from that (that was the lack of recent interval training) 1st K was about 3m04 and tri guy Carl went past me and I was just underdone/unprepared and could not keep with him.
Just hung on and was happy to keep Phil Davies behind me at the finish.
Carl ran 9m17.3.
Had a problem with the right foot during the week, might have been a spider bite as it was inflamed swollen and sore. It did not affect me in the race and is on the mend.
