Too Much Too Soon??


My legs are really feeling sore. My carves are burning. I might have pushed a bit too hard during Sunday’s run. I bought a pair of new running shoes, just went for a NEUTRAL shoe! Was so excited about my new shoes, wanted to try them out this morning, so went for a short run. I could feel my legs were really heavy so did not want to go too far off. The shoes feel so good, I feel like a real pro athlete in them :-).

I decided to run my first 21km this Sunday…but the way I am feeling at the moment, not sure if it will be a good idea. I cant risk getting a injury at this late stage. Will see how I feel by Friday. SO far the programme I have been following is working well – have achieved all my goals so I don’t know why I am suddenly getting so impatient at the moment. I am just looking for trouble….but I need the long run, so maybe I will do the race, but not at race pace…just to get past 18km.

About Moerieda Mackay

Late to running and absolutely loving it! I'm married to my soulmate, Adam and blessed with 3 beautiful children. I am a Business Transformation and Innovation Professional and holds a MSc (Eng) in Industrial Engineering. Yip, a bit of a workaholic. I became addicted to ultra running whilst searching for that elusive “work-life” balance at the age of...40! I have no sporting background and with zero athletic ability running is by far the most challenging thing I've taken on but it has put me on a path of self discovery and serious transformation both physically, mentally and spiritually...and I love it!
