I thought I would write one more post before tomorrow. I have done absolutely nothing since my last run on Sunday. Rested exactly as planned. Then why have I got these really sore calves?? I don’t know what’s going on but they are so stiff and sore, especially today. I am thinking maybe its the new runners as I have been wearing them in but surely it can’t be those. Then I am thinking maybe it is the massages I have been giveing myself on the feet, achilles and insteps. Anway as long as it all settles by tomorrow I will be happy. I might jump on the bike latter just to turn the legs over.
I am slightly apprehensive about the 8km Zoo Run tomorrow as I have never done an 8km distance before. I have done a 7km distance with RJ and we chatted while doing that which seemed to make it easier but that was before all my niggles returned. As I have said before I am going to treat this purely as training long run in lead up to R4K. I have been thinking about splits but I don’t want to get too carried away. I also want to wear my new runner’s but am thinking that may not be a wise decision to wear them for such a long run on the first time, so I will probably wear my other pair.
Anyway with all that said I am really looking forward to tomorrow night and am trying not to get to stressed about parking! I am also hoping to catch up with some more ausrunners 🙂
