Well, subsequent to the ankle injury, with three weeks of no running, I did two walk/runs with OH last week on Tuesday and Thursday , 4 miles and 3.5 miles. Did a 24 mile bike ride with him on Dartmoor on Sunday as well.
Yesterday I was itching to get out for a harder run so went off at 8.30am for a promised 30 mins and was so pleased I made the effort. I managed 3.5 miles in 33mins and 39 seconds. 6.3mph. The lungs held out for the hardest work I've done in a month and would have gone further but could feel the ankle a teeny bit.
Later on I went out with OH on his walk/run and we did another 5.4 miles (but much slower) so altogether did almost 9 miles yesterday. We did plenty of stretching on our return but still feeling it a bit today; not surprising really!!
I really enjoy going out with hubby and would thoroughly recommend getting out there with your partner if you can get them out for the exercise and for the chat (if you can manage it over the running). It's easier to do mutual stretching afterwards too! We gee each other on (got anything left? come on then!!) and can have a mutual moan to each other about aches and pains the following morning.
5 simple partner stretches:
Hopefully I'll get out again tomorrow for my own harder run, if not, it'll be Friday with the OH.
