These last few days have been tougher and tougher and gets a 2 out of 10 only because somehow I made it to 96 laps. Today was a new emotional low and fortunately some people took pictures so there is evidence to support my position. I arrived just as the runners were starting so had no time to tape my arches but lost no time. However within a few laps it was clear that I was struggling and having to expend more energy just to hit 6LPH. My quads were complaining and when I pushed, shins began to grumble. By mid-morning my arches had gone again and I had to stop and tape both feet. Yesterdays taping had left me a blister or two to go with the daily crew that arrive. Although small-ish, I don’t think I’ve ever had so many blisters.
The arch problems stem from the Asics, which is not good news. In fact it meant that today I used my last pair of new shoes – New Balance 856’s – All donations of NB 857 4E gratefully accpted.
Apart from me Madhupran took the days honours for the first time in quite a few days. Asprihanal didnt quite have the power today.
Suprabha hit a 100 and Rathin made it all the way for 2 days in a row.
