So after little sleep (probably around 4 hours) my alarm went off this morning. Maybe I should have deset my alarm when I was still awake at 1am, but at least the runs out of the way now.
It was cool, it was bright and at one point I could see the sun coming over the clouds. I knew I could do this and have it feel better than last time.
And it did! No shin splints half way round. Buzzing. I thought I was going at a similar pace to the first time judging by where I was on the same path. But I think my last three minutes were way faster than they were last time. Which is nice, it’s nice I had the energy there, but I think I may have pushed a little too hard.
My main issue is with my right foot! It seems to just drag behind my left and I’m pretty sure it falls flat footed. The aches were all definitely in my right ankle at the end of today’s run.
Anyone got any tips for not landing flat footed, or any stretches for my ankle now?
Happy Sunday x
