Getting back on the wagon, and some new experiences

Getting back on the wagon, and some new experiences

After tweaking an tendon in the back of my leg a fortnight ago, I stopped running for a bit to rest up. Last night I backtracked to an earlier podcast (W6R1) which I thought would probably match my deflated fitness level. I discovered the following things:

:) Five minute sessions of running seems *really* short;

:) I'm working in Tiberias at the moment (15 degrees today), so could run in shorts rather than the tights I have been wearing - what a liberation!

:) My pace hasn't dropped too much;

:( now the achilles tendon on the other leg feels tight.

Anyway, this still seems more appealing for running in than frost-and-fog-bound Oxfordshire...

  • Great stuff. Running below sea level is cheating with all that lovely oxygen!

    Take care of that Achilles, injuries in that area are the slowest to heal.

  • Oxfordshire's been lovely today - a real feeling of spring in the air :) But not quite as lovely as where you are!

    Do take care as you ease back in!

  • Wow, looks beautiful! Had to look up Tiberias and now I want to go!! :) It's added to the list! What a lovely place to run.
