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.
