So sorry to hear that your Achilles has started to play up again. Hill work requires a lot of work from one's calf muscles and as a result the Achilles will be stretched. Maybe, you have some scar tissue still on the Achilles which needs breaking down, so, yes, a visit to a Sports Therapist would help your problem.
I hope your project had a good response from the leaflet drop.
I ran again, with a bit of walking thrown in every now and again, just over 4 miles, av pace 10.51 mm, av HR 116.
I don't feel I am getting any fitter, not enough miles done for that. Only 12 miles a week. But hopefully it is just keeping things ticking over. My cast removal etc is not until July 15th, so a while to go yet. I can't say that I am experiencing less discomfort at all, hoping there is no permanent nerve damage done. By 15th I shall have been carrying a cast for 8 weeks.
It was a great match wasn't it, Brown has such soft hands and is lightening fast on the court with hand eye coordination second to none. However, I am not sure how his game is on hard courts, especially clay, where the game is slower and the serve volley game is not normally so successful as it is on grass. But who knows, it will be interesting to see---------
I like the painting. It is very atmospheric. The James Ward match was a good one.
However, the match of the day is being played right now. Nadal v Dustin Brown. Nadal you know all about, but maybe you may not know of D Brown. He is a character one warms to and his tennis is made for grass. The match is superb, it is exhibition tennis. I am loving watching it
I nearly forgot to mention that I did run this morning, I got back from choir and decided on the spur of the moment to do so, I managed by the skin of my teeth to fit it in between showers. It was a verrrrrry slow run, run slow on purpose.
3.2 miles in 36.28 mins, av pace 11.26 mm, av HR 116
I can well imagine that the humidity on the track last night was very uncomfortable and de-energising for you all. Actually, having just written the last sentence, I am not sure that your race was on the track, but which ever, road or track, it was an extremely warm evening. A good result, I hope you are not revisiting the end of the race and wondering how you could have run the race differently. Did you get a prize?
