I’ve been a bit busy since knocking off work on Wednesday night. My sister was way over her due date with her second baby and I was to look after her oldest daughter whilst my sister was in labour.
My planned long run was 32 miles, and I’d missed a 5 mile run on Wednesday morning and a 9 mile run on Wednesday night. I felt like it was a bit much to try and run 14 miles one day, then 32 not so long after it.
On the day I had the 32 miles planned it was Jackie’s birthday, and although I knew that my plan was 16 miles out the Clyde Stride route and 16 miles back (from Cambuslang), I thought that maybe a run with Jackie would be a good idea.
I knew Jackie was running 6 mikes that morning, so I offered to join her. Then I’d do 26 ish only own. That was the plan anyway. Jackie meets a small group of friends and runs around Pollock Park before going to body pump. They leave at 9:10. I offered to go to hers and take her to Bella, and I gave her her birthday present when I picked her up.
We got to Bella and 6 other runners were there. Jane, Lesley, Georgia, Louise, Hazel and my marathon training buddy Julie Ann. I know them all through Jackie and it was nice to see them all.
After the run, although I hadn’t noticed anything on the run, I noticed my right leg between my achilles and calf was sore. Like it needed stretched. Any time I flexed my foot up it was sore. I had another 26 miles to go though… so I got my stuff together and drove to Cambuslang…
