On Friday I had a rubbish day at work to end a rubbish week (being a manager is not all it's cracked up to be) and feel like quitting and going to run a B&B. So I was not in the best of moods prior to my run.
Now, a point to say here - on Thursday my wife decided to watch a Davina work out DVD to see what it was like. I decided to do the workout for fun, 40 minutes of hard work later I was exhausted and my wife announced that she will just do the warm up and warm down section for now. (great thanks)
When I woke up Friday morning I could barely walk as my calves had completely ceased up, at least most of my day it at a desk.
So I went out and turned the music up loud to drown out the world and went for it, funny but when I was running my calves stopped hurting. I had a good run and did 7.5k in 45 minutes.
Today my calves were still hurting when I got up for my swim, managed 50 lengths and had to stop. Only tonight are they feeling better - at least it took my mind off of my knees.
So treated myself to a bottle of a nice 10 year old single malt and am in the process of making a nice dent in it tonight.
Congratulations to all those that took part in a parkrun today
