I join you from a second rest day. I hate a second rest day. To be honest I'm not that fond of a first rest day. Oh dear
On Monday I tackled B210K W4R3 with enthusiasm. I'd planned new route and would be glad to see some new sites and the back of week 4. Off I went. Despite the heat, the many pub-over-spill-crowds and a route which gently sloped for the whole first 18 minute interval I ran on. I completed the run with relatively little moaning and griping and (just about!) made my 9 km target which I've been after for the last 2 runs. I wandered home happy.
Since then however my calves have been tight. I'm not sure if the culprit is the hills, the sprint finish or a general build up of muscle tiredness. They were shocking yesterday but have been noticeably better today. I warred with myself about going on a run until the drive home from work when I decided against it. I know I shouldn't be running with tired legs and exacerbating the problem. But still.
This situation has been made worse by my trusty 8 year old laptop giving up the ghost meaning I can't even upload my last run to Garmin Connect and stare at it longingly on my rest days. Oh boo.
On the upside, I'm going to have a beer, catch up with the tennis, and maybe have a nice late dinner which is normally not allowed due to mandatory pre-run digestion time. Silver linings.
Hope all is well with everyone, hopefully normally service shall be resumed shortly
