Oh well, that’s what happens I guess when one atrophies for a month. There will be no more of that though as long as the rain behaves itself and falls on Monday nights, or Friday nights instead of the mid-weekday nights.
I was doing pretty good on the first two laps, and unofficially I did each of the first two laps in exactly the same time! 10 minutes and 2 seconds for each lap. Obviously though the third lap was the anchor. There was more traffic on that lap in my defense, but also the aforementioned thighs hitting some kind of wall type object. And nausea was in my mind (and stomach) for the final three minutes of the third and final lap.
New records will have to wait until a non-curry night when I’m back in form!
