It’s four days since the run and my quads have returned to normal but the stiffness that I felt in them the first few days has somewhat masked the discomfort I felt in my knee prior to the run.
I would have thought that a 21.1k would have made my knee/leg infinitely worse and that I’d be laid up for weeks. In fact it’s no worse than it was prior to the run and I’d be confident in saying it actually feels better. It’s still not 100% but I reckon I’ll be good to start a new running plan next week:
IW = Interval workout with a 10 minute warm up
There’s a 10k race on 28th August – 31st de Castella run which is perfect timing and just up the road from where I first lived when I came to Melbourne.
Strangely my weight has stabilised around the 80kg mark where 3 months ago it was circa 83kg but for some reason my pot belly has returned – as always my wife can point out my indiscretions without any fanfare- too many carbs and too many beers – don’t you hate the truth?
