Classic me and Becky were like... oh we can just jog it - and we both went for it! Now where near as fast as I used to go... but in terms of where I am in my recovery I am super happy with this and it has given me a lot of confidence for the future!
My cardio system felt even fitter than this time... it was just my legs could not go any faster! But it did not feel long at all! I was really happy with the run! Great atmosphere in Lucca as well and a lovely fast flat course! Legs were present in terms of pain... but I worked through it! VERY sore now though - the legs are not used to speed work at all! <3

ahr:158 max:182 shoes: HOKA TRAIL SHOES

Great morning run in Tuscany!
Got up nice and early with Mum, Charlotte and Freddie to run this morning - hip felt a LOT better than yesterday’s stiffness (still a little tight but better!) - there was actually a little twinginess in my left hip muscles, but was fine to work with - pain moves around my body as a process - it is fine to be aware of it but not to be consumed by it.
I jogged the first 20 min with the others to warm up before they turned around and then I ran all the way up to Fabiano village and then back home. A ton of uphill climbing but I felt strong! I did the rest of the run in the form (3 min run, 2 min jog) and then I cooled down to get home! I love going this early and getting it done. Loving this holiday routine, but also learning how to be more flexible and take each day as it comes presently <3.

Post run yoga improv flow.
Poolside yoga with the fam.

Morning Stretch: DONE
Evening Stretch: DONE
Garmin Steps: 7600 - fine as did a bike ride :)
PHYSIO: Done! :)

Right hip muscles super sore today! Not a painful sore - more a ‘we have worked hard’ sore! Just being gentle in my movement today - no rushing or testing! <3 surprising after my run feeling so free yesterday - but there is tension to remove and it is All a process to work with and love <3!
8 AM

Cycling 1:11:00 [3] 18.1 km (3:55 / km) +367m 3:34 / km
ahr:131 max:168

Morning road ride with Becky and Dad.
I started off feeling AWFUL - legs were toast with any hills and I lacked a ton of motivation! But I tried to push through and did feel better throughout!
Need to make sure I am getting good rest and putting my body and soul first!
Lots of climbing - the big final hill was a good practice of commitment and pereseverance - I just kept going and I did it!
Right leg is tight and sore today in the hip - so I am being gentle the rest of the day. I will rest up overnight and I am sure tommorow will be freer <3

Running ((/Hiking!) ) 1:06:00 [3] 10.0 km (6:36 / km) +200m 6:00 / km
ahr:158 max:189

AMAZING early morning run the first morning waking up in Tuscany!
I put /hiking as I did end up walking a bit on the super steep sections!
I roughly did the session as 8 x (1 km run, 250m walk/jog) which I really liked the layout of.
I started the run early so it was cooler which felt great. I ran down the road and me a lady called Kathleen whom I asked about trails - she pointed me to some hiking trails which I attempted but I could barely run on them so I decided to head back to the road which when going the right direction was actually fine! Quite hilly and undulating but good training and a good surface. I really enjoyed it and the hip actually felt pretty awesome - feeling free and grateful today!
