Managed to drag myself out the door again tonight after not having run for a good while. It is really hard to restart once you have stopped, I can see why streaking takes that pain away.
I have been on the couch because the enjoyment seemed to evaporate and I started to get a bit fatiguey and shin splintey. Shin niggles have been something i have had since day one but never get worse than a bruised feeling. Certainly no stabbiness like some people report. But after the switch to cloud aces when my flyers died I started to feel this niggle building. I put it down to longer runs but after having tried the flyers again tonight and having a good solid run I do wonder. The flyers are definitely gone though and the ball of my foot feels bruised which was the reason I retired them, so maybe have to consider another pair.
Not a fast run tonight but felt really good and solid and despite the really annoying need to stop and poke out stones, I otherwise ran the 10k without breaks which felt like getting past another demon that was forming.
Oh and the paragliding is booked for October in Spain, I can't wait. 😁
