Well, perhaps it would have been a better day to stay in bed. After the early morning D&V explosions, things went from bad to worse, although stopped short of worst case scenario.
Last minute purging meant we left late, then just before we got there, my daughter, who had volunteered to come and support/look after me as she was the only one unaffected, suddenly projectile vomited all over the car and herself.
Luckily I had all my post race change of clothes to hand so she was able to get changed and then we aviled ourselves of the facilities in the Bath Uni Sports centre to get properly cleaned up. She felt much better so I went ahead and ran. Shouldn't have. Felt like a zombie.
The description of the course as 'muddy and technical' was no exaggeration. Lots of very steep slippery bits in the woods, pretty much the first of which I went head over heels on, banging my hip quite hard, then after staggering on a few paces, promptly threw up in the bushes.
After that, things did not get any worse at least, and I even managed to pick up my pace a bit on the second lap. race wasn't chipped so no proper idea of time. Not quick. 1.10-1.15 ish, including vom break.
Home again now. Hot bath. Chicken soup and breadsticks.
Have a couple of whacking bruises on my hip and left leg is terribly stiff after the drive home. Car is malodourous. Got the medal though. Set wouldn't have been complete if I hadn't got the first one.
