Bollocks. After ignoring the obvious niggle-signs for weeks and not doing any stretching / strength / massage, today was the day when it started falling apart.

So my right achilles has been hurting for ages and today was no different. Then after 10 minutes my left calf started pulling a bit, which was bearable until after 30 minutes my right calf started pulling even more.

It was pretty painful and I would have stopped, but I was exactly halfway round a 12k circle. As walking didn’t hurt any less, I kept going and just about made it round on one leg.

Quite painful afterwards although not as bad as it could have been. Think it will sort itself out* in a week if I actually do the strength / stretching / massage I ought to have been all along.

On the plus side, the speed was really good; under 56’ for the first time in ages and only 2’ away from PB.

*assuming I don’t do anything stupid like the Richmond Park Night-O tomorrow...

Wimbledon loop with Abi. Easy pace but reasonable time nonetheless. Good to start a bit more slowly.

To Clapham Junction from work.

Took a while to get out so worried about missing Clapham train, hence pushed it pretty hard. Perfect combo of light rucksack, nice weather (12C, cloudy, light wind) and few interruptions made it pretty damn fast.

Proof once again that “it’s all in your head” although it might take a little while to beat this time.

Running 4:30 [3] 1.0 km (4:30 / km)

From station to home.
