I felt OK after my 22 miler on Saturday. An active rest day in Sunday (with quite a bit of walking)… my legs felt fine. I’d pushed it and I’m still wondering if it’s worth going ‘hard’ or not… But we’ll see.
On Monday, for some reason, possibly just tiredness, I was in a hell of a bad mood. Not even upset just a grumpy b. Not like me at all, but perhaps I was in need of my upcoming holiday – pre holiday slump. 😉
I went a run on Monday night with Fit Girl and 4 miles turned into 6.5 miles through Pollok Park. The cloud was lifted and I felt good after it. About half way through my right leg was a bit niggly, and my knee had an odd thing going on, but I was ok.
Then I woke up on Tuesday with a sore back. No idea what i’d done. Pulled a muscle in my sleep perhaps. A dull ache there when I moved. So I took Tuesday and Wednesday as rest days, and had a dessert of ibuprofen after my breakfast each day, which seemed to help.
I thought it was ironic that I was in a bad mood on Monday, out of no where, then on Tuesday I had something wrong with me, and I was in an OK mood. I was going to run today, but I need to pack to travel, so I’ll leave it until this weekend. Rest up a bit more.
I’m planning on having a relaxing time away, sun, relaxing, reading and some running and walking. I’ve been looking forward to this for a while. I have a plan in mind for my running, including 12-13 miles one day if the place / conditions allow it, but I’ll see how it goes. My back is still a bit sore but I’m sure it’ll ease off with time.
The 25th March was my mum’s birthday, and whilst I never usually marked it before, perhaps I’ll be having some thoughts tomorrow. Best not to think about the past but focus on what I want to get out of from my future. 🙂 Sunshine, fun and smiles will do for some of it.
