It’s been a long time since I raced so early in the year and I actually thought about not racing today.
I’m glad I raced. 10km in 38:53 with just easy and steady run training behind me; no interval work whatsoever.
I want to get the foot back to 100% pain free status and then do another run block. Perhaps aim for 20 days RED and see what comes out of it.
The foot didn’t hurt too much at all during the race – it felt something like a muscle ache when I did feel anything… whatever it is, it seems that rest is helping and continuing the Run Every Day protocol is not going to fix it.
With that in mind I’ll start to swim as much as possible now.
Goal: Every day this week.
