One of the reasons for this blog is to enable me to remember what happened after the race is finished.
Today was not a good day. In fact I can regard this as the worst day in some respects so far. On the second lap of the day I felt something tighten very quickly in the upper quad region followed almost immediately by the hamstring tightening – that was it for the rest of the day and I only completed 83 laps.
I haven’t stretched at all, so maybe that was part of the problem and also perhaps I was moving a little too fast, not in touch with my body. Whatever it was it turned into one of those “special”days.
