Training Week 13

Whoop whoop my virtual London Marathon t-shirt and medal have finally arrived. The medal is massive, the bigger the better in my eyes. Love it.

My calf was a little sore after my run last Sunday. So I decided to take advantage of the fact this was the last week before the clocks went forward, meaning I had a bit of time after work before it got dark. So got 3 rides in during the week.

I could have ran by Wednesday or Thursday, but riding instead of running was definitely the sensible thing to do. As it meant I was ship shape for my weekend long run on Saturday.

I woke up a bit beat up on Sunday, just felt sore all over. Luckily we already planned to get a bit of active recovery in. We went for a 4 mile walk around Allen Banks which is part of the National Trust, UK. It is a hilly river walk, and a perfect place for a camp stove coffee. The Princesses got pitted, and were raging that we had to bath them when we got back. They were also raging because they presumed we fed them a hour late!

The more I walked the more my joints were oiled, and I will wake up feeling better on Monday than if I had done nothing today.

My new head torch arrived a couple of days ago, so all ready for some winter running, I could probably do with a windproof jacket and trousers, but that might have to wait for a month or so. As I have realised some brands are expensive for a reason… aka they produce good stuff that lasts. So I have stopped trying to get stuff on the cheap.
