Hi Shades. I'll post here rather than send you an email hoping that it will speed up your response. I returned to UK on Friday and found the trip very tiring as we had lots of things to do and we were out 9 plus hours a day daily. Mostly travelling by car but it was still tiring. So I can't really tell what this trip has taken out of me. I did a parkrun on Saturday and took it easy. Today I did 8m and found it hard going with my legs hurting especially around the ITB area. I know this is to be expected as I haven't run for 17 days but am a bit anxious. I suppose from a mental point of view I rarely thought about running and am fresher as I didn't have a tight schedule to follow. I'm planning a 5m midweek run and I have a massage booked tomorrow. I was thinking of starting at 10mm pace but don't know if that is still doable or wether I should start slower at say 10.15. Any advice would be appreciated.
Hi everyone I returned to the UK on Friday but I think it's been a very tiring trip. Didn't do any running as I knew I wouldnt anyway. Weather was really hot, but could have been worse. Anyway I did a parkrun run Saturday and did 8m today. Parkrun was ok but I really felt the 8m today. The ITB down the side if my thighs was hurting although it's not tight. I think it's just from the fact that I have run for 17 days. I'll probably do a 5m midweek at then it's rest and carbo load for next Sunday. Total mileage to date = 341.22.
Well after a week of recovering from being tired and getting a bit of the CBA syndrome from Scott I went out for a run this morning in very windy conditions. As is usual, for the majority of the time it was in my face. I found it hard going over an undulating course but happy that I did it. I didn't try and squeeze in a run to get 100m for March.
Anyway that's 324.22m to date. I'm now going away for two weeks during which there will be no running. So from being the Silverback I'll probably be the "one at the back" as I get overtaken by you all. But I knew that was coming. I calculate that by the end of April I should still be on schedule to meet target.
