After parkrun on Saturday and then spending hours sat at the track waiting and watching my son compete in the Youth Developement League (U20's Men 3000m Steeplechase) - I felt a bit achey today - nothing too bad not to run, but just to take it very slow and steady.
I took my usual route for a Monday morning - I left the house half an hour than later so I still avoided the school run. A cloudy, but bright morning with a cool breeze. Nice.
I felt tired more than anything today. It was one of those jogs when you feel you are just shuffling along! I have got to a point now were time doesn't bother me - so no more 'oh no, I still have 20 minutes to go!' I know I can do it and generally know how far I have to run - it doesn't scare me anymore! Phew!
According to my phone I'd ran 3.83 km in 30:53 at an average pace of 8:04 /km.
I seemed to really creak when I did my stretches once I'd got home! My back aches (I have a spinal problem) so I've taken some ibuprofen. My back problems have actually been a lot better since exercising and running! I am quite pain aware, so I adjust accordingly! My next run is on Wednesday evening so I have a couple of days rest
