First race this year (second race ever after my 2005 DNF).
I think I have built up OK over the last three months:
70, 80, 85 km per month, plus walks, though I'd rather have had one more
month of staying at around the 80-90 level. Right now I have some nagging
pains - went for an easy hill outing and was OK apart from my left hip
flexor. Two days of complete rest might fix that, but I doubt it. It
seems like a problem I will have to be more careful about in the future.
This is the race btw:
