Iโ€™m off the IC ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿƒ

After a visit to the Physio this morning, Iโ€™ve been given the all clear to recommence training.....yay!!!!

5k this evening at a steady pace, then an intervals run on Sunday morning before hotel breakfast.....going to Norwich for the weekend with the other half ๐Ÿ˜Š After that, itโ€™s a case of starting to build up the longer run again ๐Ÿ˜Š

Iโ€™m a very happy chappy right now but well aware of the need to build up gradually!

Still lots of strength exercises to do, goes with the territory I guess ๐Ÿ˜Š

Happy running guys ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿƒ

I can't stand this heat either. Early mornings or late evenings for me now. Oh to live by the sea!

Same here, Ted. I usually do 2 laps of Silsoe on a Thursday while my daughter in in gym class. That route is just over 6k, but after 1 lap in 28c heat I was done for and headed back to the leisure centre rather than starting lap 2. I ended up doing just over 3.5k and I was melting.

I just had confirmation that the work running club are going out at 12:40 today. Not sure whether I should go or not, although it's only 19c at the moment.........

I personally wouldnโ€™t Mike, but then Iโ€™ve got 20yrs on you, I need a recovery day.

If you feel up for it go for it but a rest day will do you the world of good..... just saying ๐Ÿ˜Š

There's at least 3 others running, and it's still only 19c. I feel like I didn't do enough yesterday, so I think I'll give it a go.........
