Recovery run


Juneathon day 15

Half way! Yay!

I decided against BMF this morning, my legs had taken enough battering from Wednesday’s class and yesterday’s longer run so I expected them to ache today.  In fact they felt fine this morning but I went for a coffee and a chat and then got stuck into ‘being domestic’ planning to run at lunchtime.

Many distractions, much procrastination (and actual housework completed) later I found myself at 5pm and with younger son’s friends coming over for pizza and DVDs at 6 it was then or never.  A quick 5k round the block.  I found after half a mile my legs did actually ache and were heavy.  I soldiered on to get it done only to find as I headed towards home that my legs had stopped aching and were feeling looser and lighter.  Must be why they call them recovery runs!

Apologies for lack of excitement in my blog but I was watching the football which was far too distracting to blog during!

3.05 miles

  1. Really makes you fit a run in doesn’t it this Juneathoning. I am wondering how I am going to manage today. Excellent total mileage.

  2. Makes a change to have a match worth watching!
