Last monthly handicap of the year. Nothing to gain today, not in contention for any awards although I will hopefully around 10th in the overall points score. Actually felt Ok after yesterday's long hilly run, pushed the pace until I passed CJ then eased back to finish 76th, CJ finished 80th.
The target for the year is fading away ever so slightly, a chance maybe, but whatever happens it will be my biggest yearly total of kms ever. Two easy months after Glasshouse 100 mile in Sept have lowered the chances, but I definitely needed the rest, both physically and mentally.
Back keen to run now, just need a couple of months of sunny summer weather.
