After last Saturday fun run sprint causing a knee injury and my subsequent training run disaster I am pleased that today's run was much better! I think my knee injury affected both my hamstring and calf muscles which were probably trying to compensate during last Thursdays run, I just had to stop at 4 miles. I did nothing but rest my legs until today. My planned run was 6 miles and I just took it easy. The hills were challenging but taken slowly. My left leg felt alright, a vast improvement on last week. Legs felt a bit tired after 5 miles. My forerunner died at 5.7 miles but I carried on to the 6.1 miles to home in 59.50 so was not far off pace. I have stretched off and feel I little stiff but good. Now I need to see if my knee remains ok. If so, my training plan for 10k in 2.5 weeks is on!! My training runs are now taking in some of the route including the pesky hill i have to do twice. It is all getting a bit real now.
Better training run today, I think! - Bridge to 10K
