Following my last post, I decided to give myself a complete rest day yesterday, no 30 minute walk, nothing. Felt so lazy!! This morning I went back to my old trainers, and with rested legs, began my run!! My intention was just to do 5 or 10 minutes, it instead my legs wanted to do more and more. Unbelievable, considering the amount of trouble I had following my last run. So today I actually ran further and longer than I ever have and was virtually pain free. 35 minutes and also nearly reaching that 5k.
The trainers 👟 definitely played a part in helping me through, but is it also psychological? In my head I knew my legs were well rested and that I was running in trainers that I have always felt comfortable in.
Gait analysis is definitely my next plan of action before new trainers.
I feel so happy 😁!
