Today is Thursday so long run day. Checking my plan I saw a 7-9mile run so used a 10 mile route with a slight detour for flooding and a short cut back walk home if needed. This morning was torrential rain and hailstones walking the dog so held off until it was wet but brighter. Went out with an open mind on distance. As usual a mile in and my left ankle was moaning. It went quiet at three miles at which point I had some serious puddle dodging to do. Off the trail and onto the track along the river and it was blowing well making it harder to run. Here came the left calf niggles at 4.5 miles. Not to be out done the right calf also had niggles too from 5 miles. Breathing wise was great but I was now very soggy with a wet foot. Onwards I went and at 7 miles both hamstrings decided to moan too so I walked whilst having a gel. I slowed the run pace to keep them happy. I felt ok despite the niggles (No pains) so I carried on the hm route further and at 8.5 miles my left glute was letting me know it was there, at least my calfs had bogged off! So the next mile my hamstrings and glutes were all singing as I ran, well aching a little. If it were the hm i would have pressed on but no I listened to the niggles and I walked home. I have no idea why I had so many niggles but I was cold, wet and tense when I got home. Feeling much better with a hot shower, lunch and cuppa!
