It’s my final day at work for two weeks and I’m in car as I’m expecting a delivery. Well, I’m hoping. One of the sponsors for my club's dog show is leaving it a bit late to send their stuff out but two huge boxes of dog treats duly arrive. I’ve no idea how I’m going to get those along with all the other show stuff including four hundred trophies to Catton Hall for the show.
Before I worry about that a bit of light relief in the shape of the Notts 5 Mile race on the Embankment. My injured knee flares up during my warm-up but that seems to get the pain out of the way for the race which goes ok, at least on that front. My pace however does feel rather slow and laborious but looking at my times after the event, I was up on last year’s time all the way to mile 4. Then I slowed over the last mile and hobbled home about 40 seconds down on last year.Not bad I suppose, on no training.
Afterwards we have a few pints in the Navigation.
