My last 2 runs (5k & 6.5k) have been a struggle.
I could understand why Thursday’s 5k was tough as it was 25c at 7:00am. Harry again joined me and he also struggled.
Up early this morning for the weeks long run and the weather was perfect; 17c with no breeze but it was a hard slog. After about a k I settled into a nice rhythm and my breathing was a lot smoother, but my calves and hamstrings felt sore. After the run, I stretched and used the foam roller and they feel heaps better. Tomorrow I have my “easy” run for the week – 20-30 minutes.
On the house front, we have the upstairs flooring down and we’re hopeful of being back in by christmas although I have my doubts based on the builders performance to date – it’s taken 15 months to get to this stage.
