Did a second run today despite having slight pain and stiffness in my quads and significant pain and stiffness in my calves. The exact same route as yesterday felt a little easier; the data painted a different picture though:
Over one minute slower with a higher average Heart rate… suppose it means I’m human. There may be an opportunity to swim tonight, see if I take it.
I finally got out for a post influenza run today. That it was on the back of two hard turbo training sessions over the previous days did not make it any easier.
It was the usual Ursvik 10km trail with the usual 700m to and from the start line.
The 10km was completed in 45:42 – by far the slowest time of the year but considering all the facts it was Not too disappointing. What further shows my lack of fitness is the falloff in pace throughout the run. The first 5km was at a quite easy 4:32/km and the proceeding 5km trailed off to 4:50/km.
I should bounce back quite quickly.
