tis a v strange thing this running lark though? ran with a friend on friday morning and did her usual run which deliberately includes all the hills in greenwich park that i usually avoid!! I did it but it was a struggle - how does that make any sense when i know i can run 26 miles?
heavy legs after 2 miles is similarly perplexing. suspect all the ups and downs of the last year are finally taking their toll?
have tried running while M cycles - but on a v cold day - must try again now as we both quite liked it (especially the mid run hot chocolate!!)
Ran London 3 weeks ago and Halstead at the weekend.
Both races went well (both just over 4h30) with no pain during the race. Legs and core fine after both races too -only pain is a very bruised feeling at the base of my spine. I did wonder if it was worn out trainers but as te bruising is mainly on one side, I'm not sure that can be right?
It's not a show stopper but if I want to carry on with this distance, I'd like to eliminate whatever is causing this. Does anyone have any thoughts?
