Back to Business

I'm positively buzzing that we're already midway through the week and so far the leg is still working. Another bit of a leg test last night indicates that all is on the mend. Following no ill effects from Saturday's exploits I'd pencilled in another slightly tough run for last night; a few interval efforts on the grass. 

I sensibly avoided the track surface (get me!) keeping to soft, terrain I tested the leggy with a few intervals to replicate an 800s session. A bit of stiffness in the warm up soon eased off and once the intervals were underway there wasn't a peep from shinny. 

Despite the lack of pain I was gasping like an asthmatic warthog. It was a bit embarrassing as M strode on ahead of me, relaxed and barely breathing i.e. looking far too fit and easy.  Meanwhile I was feeling sweaty, blobby, lumpy and all wrong in Lycra. THANK GOD I can run again. Strange things happen to me when training stops. Where did my fitness go in two weeks?! But grumbles aside; it's so good to be getting back to the business.


  1. disapointing lack of tabloid style post title quip

  2. I know exactly what you mean when you cant believe how the fitness goes in such a short amount of time! I have been trying to work my way back into shape after tendonitis and it is a bloody struggle!

    If only this running malarkey was easy hey lol


  3. Nice to hear your story...I stopped running when I meet an accident last year, it's very frustrating to realize I cannot run...Keep running til you can run...

  4. Only lost TWO WEEKS fitness eh? Pah!
    Glad to hear you're on the way back. All the best.

  5. Thanks for the supportive noises and sorry to be a bit moany Hayfella :]
