Nice work Rob, what's the next race? Manchester 10k? Anyone any ideas if it's quick?
10x 800 tonight off 60secs. All were 2.30-2.31 barring a rogue 2.32 on the 9th rep. Plan was to hit 2.35s but felt pretty good. Ankle is sore when warming up in my Nike Pegasus but once I got going in some asics it seemed to subside. Not stopping me running at the min but a bit of a hindrance especially on the easy paced runs.
To pre race jitters etc. then it stopped me running and got pprogressively worse until I got home. Fine to walk on though.
I was due to give a running mate a lift to Salford on Friday but was going to tell him I couldn't run until I looked on Facebook to see that he'd posted that he was hoping for a bit of luck off his father who had passed away and it was his birthday. I could hardly drop him a text then! He was hoping to run a low 32 or a 31 so would've been ideal for me to run with.
I warmed up but wearing my racing flats it got worse and worse so decided against it. I jogged round the course to various bits to watch him and he ran 32.27 so he PBd. Ankle seems to be sore when I set off running but seems to ease as I get going. Can't seem to manage anything without a lot of cushioning in my trainers and it feels like a tendon or something on the inside of my right ankle. Still been managing the miles though so can't grumble. Just need to nail some sessions leading up to the 10k in May now.
