It has been windy and colder than I expected plus I decided to try to run one big loop without repeating any of the run today.
Of course doing this meant that I had to run a few steep hills and I don’t think I was quite ready for it – that or I was going too fast again.
It was another race of stop start stop start but I kept adjusting my targets as I made my way around – some of them worked, some of them didn’t
I think I need to get back into a routine of building up my racing stamina etc with slow long runs, fartlek or hill sessions and some sprinting.
I hope this is just a bit of a funky period.
I did feel a bit sore again and my calves and ankles were a little achy – I hope my Hoka’s are not wearing out on me (they really haven’t done the mileage).
I ensure (as always) that I had a good stretching session when I returned from my run.
Richard is at a golf day at The London Club today so I have the place to myself. I did my final chores before heading out for my run, apart from making some lunch I have a quiet day ahead.
As this is the case I decided to treat myself to a nice soak in the bath (accompanied by the light up rubber ducks Enda gave me for my birthday 😉 ).
Have a great weekend!
