Today’s run was tough and I wasn’t expecting it to be.
I should have guessed it to be so though as I am back to running in Colchester as I worked from home today.
Richard and I have spent the last two days dismantling two double beds, rebuilding one then installing our new king size bed in our bedroom. As you can imagine living in a two story town house this is a bit of tall order.
My calves really hurt today but I think the worst was the slight nag in my lower left back and my right shoulder. Seems they took the brunt of all the heavy lifting.
I think I will be foam rolling over the weekend to sort out these aches and pains!
I wanted to get to 5K but decided not to go mad as things were hurting and I knew I could so easily over do it.
Not to worry though I still managed to crack out a 4K regardless of how I am feeling and it was a glorious afternoon so I have nothing to grumble about.
(Mind you I had thought of the blog title at about the 3K mark, maybe this became a negative mantra!).
I am sure I will be fine in time for the Pride 10K in a couple of weeks… just have to remain focussed (and not move anymore heavy furniture!).
