There seem to be a few worse-than-hoped for run reports today and I'm going to add another one
For the first time I failed to finish Parkrun this morning. It was warm, windy and busy there and the first lap went OK. I had been thinking vaguely of PB but it was really very windy so I fairly soon settled for thoughts of "pleased to get round". Then during the second lap (at about 3k) both shins started feeling very tight, then began to hurt and I decided that stopping was the best plan. I feel fine now (after a longish walk as well) but am wondering if I really need to go and get some new running shoes (another job for the long list).
I think my basic problem (apart from shoes) is not running enough at the moment - I'm moving house and trying to work as well and it's all too much! Since 5x50 finished I've been trying to keep going but this week have only managed 2 runs (Parkrun last week and one C25K+ speed session), 1 swim and 1 aerobics class. To be honest that still sounds like a load of exercise to me but clearly my body needs more if I'm to do 5K on a Saturday morning. I need to (somehow) get back up to 3 good runs a week again.
Now I"m going to "relax" in my usual Saturday afternoon way (ie do the laundry and ironing) and wait for some more blogs to be posted so I can read them
Happy Saturday all!
