Janathon Day 22.
I was a bit late getting going today. Not particularly hung over but sadly, as I’m not 18 any more, staying out until midnight leaves me a little sluggish the next day! My plan was to do a longer run but my left achilles was stiff and sore and as I started running my hamstring on that leg was also pulling. At that point I thought I’d have to give up after a token mile but by 1 mile my legs were feeling much better. The compromise was a 4 mile loop from home round the round pond and back. Hopefully by taking it gently and easing off the mileage my achilles and hamstring will survive the final 9 days of Janathon.
I’m not worried about not getting a long run done at this stage as I’m not in training for any particular race yet. It’s better to build my mileage base, finish Janathon and add long runs in February and March. After all Janathon has already got me 78 miles up on previous years!
I might however, plan a nice interesting long run next weekend to finish janathon in style. Then there’s not too many days left if my legs are completely shot afterwards!
9 days to go…
4.10 miles 41.44 mins
22/31 days run 78.73 miles.
