The Avoca Steps were very hard work, as was the last hill up Tramway, and I finished the run near the back of the field, very tired and somewhat demoralised. My painful right Achilles had restricted my stride, and my right arch was still a little sore, so they may also have been factors. I just have to remember that, although not stellar by any means, I ran better on Wednesday and last Saturday, so this morning's run should not be seen as representative of my current fitness.
I'll give the Ventolin a miss for tomorrow's run, start slowly, and hope I can redeem myself a bit.
