I have no idea what happened today. I don’t know if I was tired. I don’t know if I hadn’t warmed up or moved enough. I am not sure if I tied my shoes too tight or too loose… Al i do know is that this run hurt!
I set off with the same expectation as I did on Wednesday but decided I would run the hill route and once again take it easy.
I soon abandoned the plan to do hills and ran a longer loop. I was going to keep it flat into the country park but the route was blocked so I headed back towards the house.
At some point the pain seemed to fluctuate between each foot, one becoming numb after the other.
I stopped for a while and did some ankle rotations etc and I did seem to get into a tried and things started to look up.
Right until the end when the pain in my calves came back and my feet felt really numb – especially the left foot.
For all this drama I still managed to run the prescribed 35 minutes and I ran it at a “slow steady pace”. As I stopped to do the ankle rotations I decided to run on a little further so completed 35 minutes of running albeit with a bit of a break.
Really not sure what is going on. Was it one of those runs? Is it the fault of my Hokas? Is there something wrong with my feet/ankles/legs?
I shall monitor the situation. For now you can have a look at the stats on Strava.
