Todays plan was a short 15 minute run ahead of the RunKeeper Global 5K this weekend.
Although last weekends run was really painful, I didn’t really notice a great deal when not running, except for some minor arch pain on Monday morning.
I have been stretching this week and following the advice online for PF.
I’d planned another 15 minute run on Wednesday but work took over. I am having some trouble scheduling in my time at present, mainly as I am trying to attend all the meetings to get p to speed – this is something I will stop doing very soon!
Anyway I worked at home today so did the set 15 minutes when I finished.
Apart from realising that my run top was on inside out as started to run (I didn’t correct it – why would I? It would ruin my time! LOL), things started ok.
I had some tightness in my calves and in the ball of my feet but I seemed to find some energy and run a little harder which seemed easier on my feet.
I only ran a total of 2.2K but it felt a little better. Possibly running slowly may be a contribution factor.
I feel ok now though and the run was pretty much ok.
I still plan to run the race at the weekend and am aware that I can take my time so will see how it goes.
As for my foot etc, I have booked a physio appointment on Thursday to take a look and see if we can sort it out. I still think it’s my shoes…
The stats for this short run are on Strava.
There are some highlights to working at home (apart from not having to commute into London). I got to spend some time in the garden before I started work as the sun came up and snapped some lovely photos of the flowers blooming happily in the sun.
I was also very lucky to spot a deer come from the meadow opposite the house. This is a very rare site and only happens when it is really quiet. Luckily I was quick enough to snap it before it disappeared 😃
