Peaks SkyRace - Sunday 7 August 2016

29.7 miles (47.8 km); 6,560 feet (2,000 metres) of ascent

Weather: A hot dry day and quite sunny. Dry underfoot.

While trying to sprint as fast as I could on the outskirts of Buxton about a mile into the race I fell heavily on tarmac.My water bottle dug into the lower ribs (broken ribs?) and various cuts and bruises.My target to finish in under seven hours transformed into a battle to finish.It is hard to run properly when you can't breathe and I was reduced to a brisk walk and jog while limping along.Eventually I was timed out at the Cat and Fiddle pub (the final checkpoint) where I was about 17 minutes behind the cut-off.Even so I was pleased that I had carried on and it was much better than to have retired earlier on and it was still a fun event.The next evening (Monday) I went to the Leicester Royal Infirmary to be checked out and I was examined but not X-rayed.The medic thought that the ribs were not broken but the muscles were badly bruised and it could take up to eight weeks before I was back to normal and my toe was probably not broken.The chances of resting are pretty remote since there will be a busy schedule in September with some interesting ultras taking place.
