Monday morning, week 2 of my training. I was keen to see if I would still feel the niggle in my hip flexor (I felt a strong niggle there on Saturday night after the torture of the hills and wind at Julie Anns). 😉
It was strangely quite warm this morning… an almost tropical 9’C! It’s still damn dark though! Hurry up Spring time!
I met Gill at Bella at 6:30 and we did our usual 5 mile route. She hasn’t been exercising for a few weeks over Christmas so she admitted she might be a bit slower than she had been. The pace was fine and Gill was chatting a lot. The main thing was that she didn’t push herself and she kept her pace pretty steady. And a nice wee recovery run for me. 🙂
I noticed the niggle in my hip flexor after about 10 minutes of running. Grrrr. I guess that’s where an easy rest week (where I do less running) is going to come in handy. It niggled for most of the way around, but it wasn’t too painful. And it’s fine now. Very odd.
Oh and I was back swimming teaching on Sunday night… 20 minutes into my first lesson, I’d lost my voice. lol. Oops.
