So much for being all enthusiastic about my training ! Having written that I found the next run out was beset by troubles. First, my Ipod froze so I couldn't track my run. I wore my watch that my lovely Man bought me so that was fine, but I do like to have the run widgetted on my blog and the thought of Lance Armstrong saying "Well done ! That was a record for the mile ! " is always encouraging.
Also, I felt like crap. I was tired and my left leg hurt. I took it easy and ended up cutting my run short by 10 minutes. My left leg, above my ankle and to the side of my shin hurts when I run - a kind of burning pain. Its not too bad, but I worry to myself " Should I stop for a bit so it doesn't get worse ? Or should I just keep on and hope it goes away ? "
I'll see how it goes. I plan on getting up early tomorrow before work to go out for 35 minutes run/walk. I have been feeling so strong and happy that it annoys me when stuff like this happens.
Luckily my Ipod seems to have recovered so that's a positive !
