W8R3.... and then there was a problem

The family moved to the coast for the last few weeks of our Spanish holiday. Glorious. I hadn't had chance to do a reccie for my W8R3 run so I just crossed the road to the coastal path and started from there. Daftly, I hadn't considered that the path would follow the hills, too! Blimey! 15 mins in and I was done for but the scenery and the constant wonder at myself for even thinking I could do it kept me going. A really amazing run. Pushed myself almost to the limit but it gave me a real sense of where this running could take me (literally). Later that day (yesterday), I joined the kids in the pool. I moved quickly in the water when the little one was struggling and..... banged my toes on a step..... badly bruised..... limped through the rest of the day.... I had a lovely plan to do W9 on the long promenade, enjoying the sea views and hoped to graduate that way.... still hoping I can do that in the time left of the holiday. Doh!

Should have said 'last few days' not 'weeks' of our holiday. Don't get weeks!

Thanks, Jancanrun. I'll be taking an extra rest day tomorrow and hope that does the trick.
