Whoop! I went for my first run since the marathon last night – felt very weird being back out again, somehow I was surprised I could still run – like I was going to have forgotten how/lost all my fitness….. (G+T will do that to you)
Met up with Gray and decided that I wanted to do some hills – I have no idea why….. After the second hill I voiced this concern, he thought it was an odd decision too, but had gone along with the madness and we went off to do 2 more!
Was a fab session, a beautiful evening out in the park, great to be back out running again
Then this morning came and the old aching instep/grumbling Achilles was back….. I’m fairly sure it’s the shoes I’m running in – I never had this problem before swapping to them. Promised myself that I would transition to a more barefoot/minimalist shoe after the marathon, I think that time is fast approaching….. might treat myself to a minute or so on the treadmill this evening…..
Tomorrow is my first session back training with Jel and Nikki – on one hand I’m very excited to be training with them again, on the other I am very fearful of what might happen to me – it’s been a good 2 months since I stopped and haven’t really done anything but run and kettlebell since then…… will I be able to walk or raise my hands to hit my keyboard tomorrow? If you hear nothing more from me then will someone come pick up and broken Emma from Finsbury Park and feed her coffee/chocolate (or both)?
