18K was a practice target for this coming weekend’s second HM but l stopped at just over 13K. Twitch in upper left calf warned me and then overcompensating balance made the opposite ankle ask me to stop. I’m p....d off beyond words.
What happened? Late night on Saturday meant l wasn’t ready for my early run so had to wait. Waiting meant l moved around the house moronically without too much preps and stretches. At 7.30pm it was 32C but at least l liked that.
First 8K fine and comfortable then around 9K the damn twitch. Around 12K came the foot alarm. Walked for 5min against my “walking means stopping” rule then attempted to run but stopped soon after, red with anger.
On the plus side, hydration and breathing spot on, no issues. This morning a bit sore but doesn’t feel like any real damage was done. I’ll skip the morning run tomorrow and let it all calm down, including my mind...meh...
