The one where I take it steady
It was the last NT group session before the half. I wanted to go, as I like the sessions, but I was a bit nervous of doing too much before Sunday (especially after last nights speedy (for me) 5k).
There was a new girl tonight, so the three of us walk/ran around the usual loop. It was a lovely evening and the Park is a beautiful place to run.
PANIC! Every time we stopped to walk and then run I got pains in my knee and ankle. I ended up turning my foot in more, which helped a little, and sort of limping to one side. As with a lot of things, rather than telling the others … or just stopping, I carried on and covered nearly 5k. Although I think it was probably 5 as I forgot to start the watch!!
I spent the rest of the evening with my foot up drinking a glass of wine. Probably not the best race preparation but after a stressful week and a new worrying injury it was very much needed.
Two more sleeps to go at the first big challenge will be here … Eeek!!!!
