|Those were the days! On my way to a Personal Best 14:26|
5,000m in the 1977 Victorian Interclub A Grade Final
Getting a massage was suggested by a friend, but it doesn't seem sensible to try something new at this juncture. I think I'm too "old school" anyway, and have a bias towards letting my body sort itself out. I did resolve while running, however, to find out if there was anybody willing to take my place in the relay and am pursuing that option.
I also decided that if I am going to run, then I will warm up for at least 10km beforehand, including the planned run-throughs, and also that I won't try to run faster than a comfortable pace, particularly in the first kilometre. After all, the event is just a bit of fun and there's not a lot riding on the result.
