After two days off, it was back in training mode this morning. Alarm set for 7.30am, out the door just before 8. Plan was do to about 8-10 miles but didnt have a firm route.
It was always intended to be a slower run today but after my calf started nagging just past Crook Log Sports Centre on Brampton Road just beyond halfway, I decided to take the quickest route back. I made it back but the calf tightened up for the first time in ages and I'm just glad I got home without any major damage.
I can feel the beginnings of man flu coming as well, sadly. Not a surprise really, with the amount of time I've been spending outside recently, especially with not showering at the Gym and taking the lazy option of changing into a tracksuit before jumping on the bus home.
It was a good session but I know I can run much faster. Not a problem having the odd off day. I'm now dosed up on Nurofen Cold & Flu tablets with a hope to get this cold shifted ASAP.
