Good pace always around the circuit I run, Laura says 60 seconds to go, feeling fine and not too fatigued, my head says 5th gear please legs, legs say sorry still in 4th and over I go. Managed to land on my hands and knees, the annoying thing was if it was a minute earlier it would have been a soft landing on soggy a football pitch. Rough canal towpath surface plus 16 stone moving at speed equals lacerated knees and left shin, load of skin peeled of right palm and the wind knocked out of me. Lucky no one was around to see me go flying. Couple of funny looks from folk as I stumbled back home on the warm down brisk walk with the blood running down my legs. I am counting this run as completed. Hope I feel ok for Tuesday afternoon run 3 but bruising should be coming through by then and will probably still be very sore.
