Heavy legs

Oh god, oh god, oh god… What a nightmare getting up the hill from Kloof Nek to the Cable Station. My heavy post race legs were an understatement. They felt like lead. The South Easter was blowing, and to make matters worse I made everyone run Tafelberg Road (because my race plan said one hour and thirty minutes) oh they were cursing me as we ran into gale force winds at the corner below Devils Peak. Seemed to warm up a bit at about 10km and actually led the pack back to the cable station. Maybe I’m loosing some weight and getting fitter? Either that or I was looking forward to finishing…
