I’m very glad I still have some base fitness from running or else the pain I’m feeling would be much worse!
I’ve started running again this week after about 4 weeks off due to laziness and illness. It’s a little hard going but much easier than I thought it would be!
I started by doing 5.43km on Sunday at an average pace of 06:25 min/km. Nice and slow so I didn’t insure myself! On Monday my legs were quite stiff and I didn’t go running but had that as a rest day.
Yesterday (Tuesday) I increased the distance and the speed just a bit:-
Today was another day off to rest my (still) sore/stiff legs and then I’ll be off to the gym again tomorrow morning to visit my friend the treadmill! Once I get things built up again my long runs will be on Sundays again and I’ll be off on the roads to see where I end up!
It’s all good! Bring on the Fredericton Marathon!
