This one was for the “Write Off” section again. Overall a bad race for me. The only positive thing was that i didn´t quit. I was thinking of it from mile 2 to 5.
Mentally and body wise i´m not up to speed. I knew that i wouldn´t PB in this one but a 01:03:32 is worser than i expected.
It was tough but i never really got out of the “comfort zone”, never really got the whole thing rolling, never was relaxed. The flu shocked my body more than i thought. Even mentally i wasn´t there. Just jogged the thing home at end.
Now it´s heads up and work hard to get back in shape. I don´t need performances like this.
Thanks to Darren and Racepix365.com for capturing that jog 😉
Don't worry Markus, racing is an up and down, and after a cold, you cannot pretend much!!!
I'll be in Dublin from Monday evening, let's meet a pint or in the worst case a run on Saturday!!!
I'm still doing many short run, I think I can try a slow 1h30 or so .. have to try early or late 😀
