I did my last training run for the week today and it was a beautiful morning for running. Heaps of people out and about around the Tan. I ended up doing 10km but in hind site I should have settled for 8km. My body was protesting at the 8km mark, mainly my flipping sciatica but I kept on going 😳 Will I ever learn honestly??? Anyway, when I got home I decided to have a ice bath which although was pretty painful to get into 😯 it was really soothing on the legs. I am now in my skins. I hope I am not too sore for my massage tomorrow. I am only going to cross train this week and rest my weary legs so no running at all.
I have decided that at the moment I am a 10km runner but only just, so, I will definitely not be attempting to run the whole way for R4K. At this stage I think I will walk through the 6km and 12km water stations and then run remaining 3.2km. I think I should be able to manage that although I am sure it will be slow. I am gettting a little stressed about getting there on time as I was going to catch the train but the first one is at 7.30am, too late for me! I thought I read somewhere that extra trains were going to be running but there is no mention on the website. I think I will ring metlink tomorrow and find out for sure and then really start panicking!!!
My next event will probably be Run to the G. We have to move out of our house and find somewhere else to live so the next couple of months will be busy. I also have to sort out my niggles as they are still here. I have no idea why sciatica has returned as I thought that was just a dim memory. At first I thought it was the x-trainer at gym but I haven’t been using it. I am not sure if I should go back to Podiatrist to see if it is a orthotic issue. Maybe they need adjustments?? My right instep rubs on the orthotics on the longer runs now and my right hip is quite sore at times. Bladdy. bladdy, blah….do you get sick of reading about it because I get darn sick of writing about niggles, thats for sure 👿
Guess who was the dill who thought day-light saving finished next week-end 😳 I woke hubby up at 4am for work, who after 5-10mins of being up, realised it was in fact only 3am and then proceeded to growl about it for the next hour 😆 In future I think he should just get himself up without having to rely on me all the time!! Between darling husband and children its no flipping wonder I am an exhausted zombie half the time 🙄
