|I was feeling OK this morning on Brush Road just|
before the turn-around.
|The climb up Wycombe Road exposed|
my fitness deficit.
After the run, several of them commented on how fast I had run this morning, but I knew that I had gone out faster at the start while they socialised, and felt guilty about getting unearned praise. I got what I wanted, in terms of a hard, and for me, fast run, but I would have been further behind if I had run with them for the first five kilometres.
