What was the problem?
5K and going strong
Mr.Fujiwara, Kikuchi San, older boy and Me. Younger boy stayed at home with a fever. I turned on the telly and locked the door. Great parent eh!
What a "Goose." Well I wish I was a speedy one!
Me and the Missus, she looks good when she's not burning anything!
9th K headed to the goal a broken man.
Had a blowout today in the 10K! Ran, but the best I could manage was 36:57, 7th place and just out of the trophies. Pretty disappointed with the run today. I reckon I was set for a PB and a good place but after a fast start, leading until 3K, I couldn't respond when 4 fast guys passed me. And couldn't do anything to hold off another 2 who overtook me at the 7K mark. Really feel depressed now but like any fanatic I will take this as a sign that I simply must toughen up and come back next year and give these fellas a clipping. Somethings leading to this race like a sick son and feeling crook myself the day before, and nerves could have contributed to my poor showing but I trained well and hard for this race and I should of done better!
Nevertheless, I had a great post race lunch of beers and Chili dogs with family and friends so in the larger scheme of things I'm alright. Just have a horrible feeling that my PB days are over and I've peaked! I'm sure that will pass. Drowning my sorrows tonight but tomorrow is another day and I'm determined to wipe today's race from the memory! While I want to forget this race, I have to remind myself that I did get a course record by almost 30 seconds and I should be happy about that! As long as I keep going forward in any respect I'll remain happy.
Sorry Paul I wanted to get some photos of you and Sarah but it slipped me mind. We were too busy drinking and talking, I guess ;) It was great to meet you two!
Just in case "Home Services" is thinking of coming in to protect my kids from their parents I have to say that that line about leaving the boy home alone was a joke! The G'parents were on the job, thankfully.
