Tried very hard to take this conservatively, and was trying to see whether I was up to racing without asthma medication yet. Not quite, Got pretty wheezy at times.
Made a hash of one early control (3), stopping one corner too soon, Stopped early heading to 6 and punched a wrong control, got turned around by the dodgy multi-level carpark on the way to 14, sloppy around the demountables at 17, then had a total baslls-up leaving the 3rd last 90 degrees out and dumping 45 seconds and all remaining motivation.

So, no repeat of a fortnight ago. In fact, nowhere near it. Pretty poor effort for the speed I was running.

run (treadmill) 30:45 [3] 6.0 km (5:08 / km)
shoes: Saucony Cortana

I was asked to look after some rugby kids while they worked out after only 4 of them pitched up for training, making standard rugby drills a waste of time.

Wanted to get a short easy run in anyway to see how the legs were really going, so had a little play on the treadmill.

Unfortunately, forgot the heel raises, which I want to phase out again anyway, but probably not the best idea for first run post-marathon. Calves got pretty sore, so stopped and stretched after 15 minutes, then got going again. Marginally better in the first half. Encouragingly, after struggling to get going in the first 10 minutes, I kept trying to run off the front of the treadmill in the second half.
