Only a couple of small runs for me this week. I did a slow 5K in Rome on Wednesday, just to make sure that nothing was too damaged, then, after flying home on Thursday, I put in a slightly quicker 5K on the Friday morning... Then, this morning, I ran probably the toughest Hilly Half Marathon of my life - 2442ft of ascent & just a tad more on the descent! So on top of cobble-mashed marathon legs I decided to trash my hamstrings on the way up & my quads on the way down!! Way to go you muppet!!
Wasit worth it? Yeah, I think so. I finished 11th over all (10th bloke), first home for ny Club, and, most importantly, secured the 10 points I needed to bag first place in the MV40 category of our Club competition! Yay!
Two days of non-running now, although I will go for a light swim this evening & a light cycle tomorrow, then nothing more than a slow 10K on Weds, Thurs, & Friday, rest day on Saturday, then a trail Half Marathon in the Forest of Dean on Sunday... Help - I'm addicted!
