So close to finishing, and I think I've gone and scuppered things temporarily.
Wanted to do Wk9 R2 yesterday, but I'm also itching to do a Park Run. Everyone I spoke to said 'Go for it', 'You'll be fine' blah blah - and I've seen posts on here from folk who've done Park Runs before they've completed all 9 weeks. So decided yesterday to extend my run, so that I ran the full Park Run course - just so that I knew I could do it before Saturday, and not be a complete embarrassment to myself. Took lovely MJ with me, did my own 5 min walk, then ran through the whole thing (5+30+5) and a bit more on the end. Yes, I completed the course, in 45 mins, but it was a struggle, and I was too stubborn to put in a couple of walking bits.
However, in the last 1-2km, I started getting a twinge just underneath my shin bone - but not too bad, so carried on. After the run it was a bit more painful, and now just feels like a bruise if I press on it. But, the pain has moved down my leg, and there's something going on in my ankle, which I've now got strapped up. Walking is ok-ish. (Driving is fine!). Going upstairs twinges, but going downstairs is extremely painful!
Somehow, I have that feeling that my Wk9R3 run is going to be delayed, and Park Run will be a couple of weeks away.
