That’s the only way to describe this run.
I didn’t get that far into the run (just under a kilometre), when things started to hurt.
My knees, calves, shins, thighs all started to burn and it felt really uncomfortable.
I stopped and walked for a bit – in fact I did this twice but each time I seemed unable to find my stride and each time I had problems.
I had a brief moment of decent motion but then simply had to give up.
As you can see from the heat map, this was not a very fluid run 😔
I completed a loop and got back to the house before I admitted defeat.
I was annoyed with myself as not so long ago I could run a half marathon – in fact today was Colchester Half Marathon. Today I could barely make it to a couple of KM 😔
I am not sure what caused this pain but it may be simply due to the fact Richard and I have been cleaning out the garage and have broken up lots of wood and rubbish and had a few trips to the recycle centre. Maybe I am expecting too much of my raging bones.
Now we have space in the garage I am considering a cross trainer or bike to help with my exercises – I might simply need to add more variety to my routine.
Maybe I simply did too much this weekend.
Anyway I am glad I stopped as my legs still hurt so pushing in would have been foolish.
Maybe a better run next time.
The stats (if you can call them that), are on Strava.
