Luckily, the pain in my shin didn’t return and I managed an easy 3 miles on Thursday going around another local loop.
Friday was a rest day.
Saturday, after a 12 hours shift, was a 7 mile run home. A bit chilly on the ears and my chest / tummy was rather cold by the time I got home – nothing a hot shower couldn’t fix.
Sunday morning, I was up with the larks (or even earlier) and out of the front door by 05:20. That’s twenty past five in the very a.m. !
It took me a while to get everything working but that’s part of the reason for doing these back to back runs. You need to teach the body to run when tired.
I arrived at work well before my start time of 07:00 giving me time to shower and change before getting my nose to the grindstone.
All in all, a good week.
