It is always difficult to work out what to do post-Comrades. My stomach was fine, my heel had nicely scabbed over, and I didn't feel as tired as I thought I would. I do, however, realise that there is often a lot of deep fatigue and stress on the body that may not be immediately apparent, so it is vital to have some recovery time, even if you don't really feel that you need it.

The next weekend saw the Mabie Trail 10K, which was the second counter in our club's trail Grand Prix. I wasn't sure whether to take part or not right up to the day, and have to say that I wasn't exactly feeling my best on the day. It had been my work's summer BBQ & cocktails the afternoon/night before - so between the aftereffects of that and the start of manflu, I knew there wouldn't be any groundbreaking performances, but it's still nice to support a local event.
