Tired legs

245After a morning coaching the South Central Juniors at Star Posts, Bracknell, we nipped over to Prospect Park in Reading for the Hants Cross-Country League race. My legs were pretty dead from the off and that was on the flat – I made no headway when it came to the hilly section. Unlike last weekend, I wasn’t able to pick up the pace at all on the second lap of the 8.4km course. I eventually finished in just over 35:30, four places down on where I was in the championship race! It wasn’t a wasted journey though as I was needed to count for Southampton. Unfortunately we then made the mistake of trying to exit Reading via the Oracle shopping centre and the Madejski Stadium (just after the Royals match with Everton would have ended) so the journey home was also slow!

    London Irish and Toulouse played today at the Madejski. Everton vs Reading is tomorrow, in Liverpool. Getting out of central Reading always seems to be slow.

    Oops! That would explain why the home fans appeared to be a little thin on the ground (and well behaved ;-)).
