To all those doing the park run on Saturday 'Good Luck' and I'll be cheering you on (virtually that is). Pom poms are at the ready!!! Let us know how you get on.
Unfortunatley, I am having to pull out. Sorry to let you down but I can from previous experience say I know that you can do it!!!
For the last couple of weeks since doing runclub on a Tuesday and park run on a Saturday I've had really sore legs (mainly calves / shins) in between. They only just start getting less sore and I go out again. I must look a site walking around, steps have been particularly hard! Therefore, as they are still sore today I've decided to be sensible and rest properly (may squeeze in 20 mins on Sunday if they are better by then). Not sure why this is happening but it is probably a comibination of going that much further with the running club and not doing proper warm up / cool down. I will have to make sure I arrive earlier in future and just do a quick walk around the block / park before the start and remember to do my stretches after.
On a separate note run club this week was particularly hard. I couldn't breathe for the first 30 mins and wanted to cry & give up BUT I didn't. The group are lovely and encouraging and wanted to make sure that this bad one hadn't put me off coming back..aahhh how nice! It hasn't! Also, I voiced my concern about holding everyone up, being at the back etc etc and was told not to worry about it I was doing fine!! Also when checking how far we'd gone on my Garmin the leader told me we'd gone much further so perhaps it hadn't been working in the woods??? I am happy to believe him and that probably explains why it's been so hard...8km!!!!!!
That's my waffling over for now. Hope you all have a fab weekend and enjoy the lovely weather (when you aren't running!!).
