The one where I am disappointed
I managed to go for a run last Monday (25th May) but it was a disaster!
After running round the local National Trust I got bitten by some nasty insect on my ankle and calf. It was itchy, red and swollen and antihistamines sort of helped … but I could still feel it.
So … I set off in my new trainers and wearing my new GPS watch and ran a measly 2.37km in nearly 18 minutes.
It was so painful! I hobbled off the main road and took a shortcut home. When I got home my ankle was swollen and my foot a funny colour. So to get over the disappointment I had a beer.
It also meant than my plan to run every other night was scuppered and I had to take a week off. A business trip and three planes in three days meant that my foot didn’t go back to normal for 6 days.
Next week I will have to step it up a bit!!!
