This morning I was kidnapped by my bed and held hostage by my duvet for several hours which resulted in me having very little time for my run before we went out to the theatre this afternoon, so my plan for 6 miles became a quick nip out for 3 miles. Although I definitely wasn’t nipping anywhere nor quick.
The reason I was so sluggish is because I’ve picked up an injury. Absolutely nothing to do with my ankles, feet, calves, quads, hips or glutes. No this is not a running injury but a sofa injury incurred when stretching to pick up the tv remote control. So if people offer advice about the perils of exercise and running when I mention I’m training for a marathon I will tell them that sitting on the sofa is equally hazardous.
I think I’ve over stretched, strained or pulled something on my left side, just on or below my ribs, when reaching down to grab the remote from the floor. I felt it at the time but it wasn’t bad and I was OK on Tuesday even when running but quite uncomfortable today. Fingers crossed it’s nothing serious and only bad today because I slept on it badly. My legs are all fine and raring to start marathon training next week!
Janathon day 3. 3.22 miles.
