Finally, 8 days off now!
Today didn't drag and I wasn't in holiday mode at all really. Focused and got "my" work completed etc before 3:30PM so no worrying over the break..
Food safety audit yesterday in my kitchen and scored 96% so pretty pleased with that (That's the last 3 over 95% so I deserved a bonus right boss) Our business took £5 million last year so it's an extensive op to run but results like that are rewarding.
Foot felt better today, and even better on the run. Strange. Seems a little settled and a rest day tomorrow should help. Will RICE over weekend, no shin problems and still peroneal isn't nagging.
So activities today - 5 mile worth of windy but easy cycle commute then home followed by 4.02m run @6:54 pace (no HRM). Massive tail wind last 2 miles along Weston shore as ended up at a mates house as we had organised to play badminton! Not the wisest choice but there were 4 of us and I played one game and took it easy no over stretching feeling ok
Dropped off home and 45 minutes on the turbo watching rocky 1 for motivation feeling pretty good although bloody HRM didn't pick up signal this time! Felt controlled and in my usual spinning gear for high cadence so a good bagged effort
"spinning is winning"
Off now for Christmas and will just run Saturday and Sunday now no cycling till Monday..
Plan next week is lot's of rest, stretching and to run 5 or 6/7 days 30-35 minutes, slightly slowing on any longer runs but mainly aiming to go at least 4.5 miles no more than 5...
1 hour massage booked Monday just to start regular maintenance where am running more often..
Currently 43 miles for December running
