Just finished my Sunday run. First run of any reasonable length that i have been able to do in well over a month.
Was a lovely little run on a scenic route following the coast on an out and back trail. Slippery underfoot at times but good fun. Weather was strange. A nice sunny 20 degrees to start with and by the end i was freezing having run in a hailstorm for 20 minutes. All part of the fun though.
I managed20.22km in 1hr 45min. Reasonably pleased. I had to take my orthotics out of my shoes at 14km as they were rubbing on my arch. Also my feet were aching. Ive never suffered from this before.
At 16km i felt my itb tightening up. So i probably pushed it a little too much today as im still in recovery mode.
Monday 9th August – Sunday 15th August
5 runs = 54.65km in 4hrs 38mins
Summary: First real week of running. Still taking it easy as itb is threatening to kick in. Will look to build on this next week.
