|My trail running club-mates on their way to Hornsby|
|The first creek crossing proved a challenge|
I finished, tired and sore, particularly my suspect right heel, in 7:45. This was a disappointingly slow time, but still 1:40 faster than two weeks ago. The real test of any damage came today when I walked an easy 5km. My heel was stiff and painful, but I think it will come good by tomorrow, and my legs and back are aching. However, nothing seems bad enough to change my training plan which now involves a steady taper to the half marathon in two weeks.
