Not the best of my 157 Cotter runs I have ever done. Felt Ok to start up the Brindabella Road and up to top of Mt McDonald. Tailed the field but it was still a longish day under cloudy humid conditions. No sign of rain.
Somewhere, the legs just gave up. It was if the turbo had cut out and the small diesel engine was doing all the hard work.
I did manage to do the 21 mile course, although I would have liked to cut that down to the 18 miler. But, the inner devil said no, go the full distance as you made the others come out here and go the distance. Vanities was lovely, but as I was so far behind, it was a case of wading thru and keep on going. A sit & rest in the water was very tempting.
They must be friends as every one was still there when I finished. We stopped at Cooleman Court for a coffee on our way home.
Not sure what happened on the day, seem Ok now. Try a shortish run tomorrow, just over 13.3 kms will do nicely.
