So that takes care of week two on my 12 week plan to get back into running. Pretty easy week I admit but I am in no great hurry.
SUNDAY: After running long the day before and falling over hurting my knee and side I was not up for much. A fairly quick 5 km. Weight 68.3 Kgm on the first day of the year.😢 Only slight pain in knee but side hurt the whole time.
MONDAY : Didn’t feel that good so only ran a slow 5 km in the dark by myself. Picked up near the end. 😪 Side still painful.
TUESDAY: Good group run with a group of friends. Covered 21-22 km which was ok although had many stops for photographs etc. Enjoyable time. 😁
WEDNESDAY : Met fellow Namban runners in the park. Did not train with them as I want to take it easy at this stage and just slowly ease myself back into running.Ran about 40 minutes along the paths in the dark. Was it ever cold !! Good outing.😀 Tamami said my face had gone a bright red !!😱
THURSDAY : Using newly purchased racing flats ran a quick 20 minutes with a number of surges. Wind made the whole exercise very interesting. Felt a little sick but no big deal. Chest still hurts but only when I run.
FRIDAY : Didn’t get out till late so just ran the same as yesterday increasing the pace bit by bit near the end. Wore my other NEW pair of racing shoes. Weight 68.2 Kgm. Still eating too much. GYM: Hard gym session….I need more strength.
SATURDAY : Met Nambanners and ran some hill sprints. 8 hills. Still not very fast but getting there if somewhat slowly. This is not that demanding and is lots of fun to do. A little dizzy but kept moving so all OK.Went to Starbucks afterwards with team mates….not a place I would ever think of going but it is fun to do something outrageous now and then 😱😱
TOMORROW I will meet fellow Nambanners for a ‘ long’ run. Pace will on for from the start so I will not be able to stay with them….still lunch afterwards will be good. We are going to a place that serves Pizza so it looks like another wild eating adventure.
