One2escape, just do enough next week to prevent your legs from tightening up. It doesn't necessarily have to be running. You don't want to risk any injury now. If you fancy a bit of pain though, you may want to try a sports massage.
Great write up one2escape. You seem to be gaining confidence and enjoyment for running with each report.
That was a cracker day yesterday. My daughters did the 1 mile family run and both crossed the line grinning from ear to ear. I did the 10k and was similarly caught on camera with a big grin. It's not the most inspiring of routes, but the work put in and the atmosphere was brilliant. I finished in 47mins and was more than happy with that. And I got a hug from Mags too - a perfect day!
Your run yesterday sounds lovely HMM. I agree about being spoilt for choice with the running trails here. 9 miles this morning myself. Feels a lot cooler today but at least it was dry. I'm in for the annual TQ10k stampede tomorrow, and my wee daughter is doing the 1 mile family run. I'll be wearing a 26 Extreme shirt if you're down.
Hope you all are able to get out and enjoy the beautiful weather. I had a lovely 9 mile run on Saturday and 12 miles today out in the countryside. Also a cracker 2 hour cycle yesterday. Not training for anything in particular but just doing it for the pleasure of it. Great weather for those pre-marathon long runs. Ballyliffin must have been spectacular.
Perfect morning up at Larne for the half marathon and was happy with my time of 1:47. One of the (many) things I love about this race is that us slower runners can see the leaders on their way back. Lovely to watch how they run. Kenny, I shouted over when I passed you. You were clearly in pain so well done on completing the race.
