One year older, back to work blues and week 4 done..woo hoo!

Well today I was back to work after a lovely 2 weeks off, I'm a whole year older...but I didn't use that as an excuse. I've just completed week4 run 3 after getting in from work. It was a warm one, but I genuinely surprised myself, not only was I shocked when laura told me I'd completed my last run cos I felt I could have kept going, but I feel great at the end of it! I've been finishing the other runs in week 4 and my calves have felt really tight and achy and that feeling has lingered for a while, but my partner came running with me for run 2 and he commented that I was running hunched over. So today I concentrated on keeping my head up and my shoulders straight and stretching my stride and I feel so much better for it, no tightness in my calves woo hoo! Now bring on week 5!

  • Happy birthday and we'll done for completing week 4! Keep up the good work!

  • well done and many happy returns.

    Re the tight calves: are you stretching properly after your runs? Most of us don't, or not enough. I am just back from a run myself and haven't... yet...

    investing in a foam roller is also a very good thing.

    That's 'good' in a horrific screaming agony torture kind of way, but beneficial.

  • Happy birthday Suzy. :)
