Quite soon into the run I noticed my left knee and ankle were a little sore
So I watched my pace and decided not to push it too far.
Annoyingly the main part of Castle Park is closed for a pet show so I had to run the outside of the park which meant the big steep hill. My ankle didn’t thank me and I knew I would t complete all 9 miles today.
I kept going and put myself through a brand new course covering the leisure centre, Castle Park, town centre and around Avenue of Remembrance. Beach home.
An hour later I was feeling ok but decided this was the point to stop today. I had cleared 8.14 km or 5 miles so was 4 miles short of my target. Not bad considering this wasn’t the easiest of runs.
I think I caught my knee when I slammed on the brakes on the bike yesterday and my ankle pain came from the new shoes I wore Friday. Not excuses just explanations. I’m happy I squeezed out 5 miles though.
Now to enjoy the rest of Sunday.
