Well this is it. My last speed session and wouldnt you know it.....my stomach has decided to kill me all day.....a slow agonising death. Days like today I hate my body. I look 6 months pregnant and have moments where I cant even stand up straight. All I can do is hope it passes (no punn intended) and that I can walk.
I was lucky and my tummy eased enough to walk. Was still tight and crampy which made walking fast challenging. Infact i am sure it effects my psoas as at 5km my right leg started playing up with pain in the hamstring and calf.
By 5km I nearly quit. My fasts were getting slow and my slows were becoming OMG slow. But it is better to get the distance so I spent more time focusing on technical stuff......and from the video on my fb wall....its paid off.
So now its time to reflect. While I have not lost any weight, i am faster and stronger. That alone has to be an advantage for me. I am used to heat so that puts a small advantage to me..........time will tell and it will come down to who is hungrier for the win.
Bring on Perth......I'm ready
