Trans Gaule 2008 Day 9: 13th in 7:05 race leader wins in 5:43, finally 2 days of sun. Over half way to Gruissan now & in a helluva lot better shape than same time 2006, only downside being a sore throat (unfortunately a similarity to that time) after

Woke up this morning with a sore throat (1 of a few apparently) so
decided this was to be an easy day. Took off casually but found the
very runnable road meant i didnt drop too far back. Was surprised to
find many familiar runners dropping back towards me. Ultimately passed
10 during the ensuing 50K which meant i ran faster than i planned
(tend to just grind along behind looking for the best place for a nice
clinical overtaking with room for a bit of demoralising acceleration -
i never claimed to be nice).
