Had a busy weekend, averaging 20k+ steps a day. Bearing in mind my normal daily effort is less than 3k. Todays plan was to walk up a local beauty spot thinking I could then run back down again. Well holy moly the walk up nearly killed me! I had to stop twice on the way up. ⛰⛰⛰
Started my c25k app at the top, 5min warm ✔ 90 second run just as I got to another mountain. Ok a small incline... I couldn't finish the run 🙁 Recovery walk ✔ then for the biggy, 3 minutes of running. By now I'm on the flat and heading for the down hill ✔
From here on in it goes swimmingly. When the lovely Sarah Milligan said I know your tired and may want to stop I found myself saying no I'm fine. Now that's progress 👍👍👍
Legs are feeling leaden so may give myself an extra rest day. 😊
Sounds like your recovery time is improving. Good job getting to grips with a downhill, they’re not as easy as they look. Give your legs some pampering and enjoy the rest... then onwards.
Thanks x I actually like going down hill, even hill walking in the lakes I would scamper down much faster than everyone else but always the one at the back, huffing and puffing on the way up 😂
