Well, I loved most of my run today - I ran up onto our local bridleways and trudged through several miles of mud and puddles before heading back towards the pavements of my local village for the last 3k. The mud did not defeat me (yes, it slowed me up but that's ok) and the weather was good - mild and a slight breeze🙂. But like Irishprincess the other day, my IT band decided to play up during the second half with that familiar rubbing feeling on my outer knee.😠 In addition to this as I approached 12k, I had the familiar start of a 'silent migraine'. I have experienced these on occasion, for many years - you get the visual field distortion (zigzags) without the accompanying headache. Sounds weird🤷♀️ (and it is) but they come and go within half a hour usually, after which normal service is resumed! They are not specifically triggered by running for me and I am just glad it came at the end of my run rather than half way through, as I still managed to get my planned 12k in the bag!👍
So, maybe not a great run but I did enjoy the first half - and am feeling chuffed that I got out and ticked off some miles!
