Mmmm pancakes nom nom nom! I love pancakes, preferably with sugar and orange juice, but Green and Blacks Hazelnut Chocolate spread works just as well for me… fairweatherrunner and I worked out they are about a mile each calorifically speaking so I’ll need to do 3 miles tomorrow – can’t face it tonight with all that stodge in me!
Went for my club run last night- we’ve never done more than 4 miles on a monday so imagine my surprise when 15 minutes into the route they tell me where we’re going and I work out it’s over 5 miles! I stoically kept a straight face but inside I was thinking – what if my ankle starts playing up?- we’ll be too far from anywhere for me to get back… It was OK though, thankfully we took it at a slow 13m30 sec per mile plod, so although my achilles was a little sore by the end, it wasn’t too painful and I stretched it off.
I’m really trying to avoid going to a physio – I’m sure they will tell me I have lots wrong with me and I just don’t want to hear the prognosis which will probably be lose weight, rest , blah blah blah, so instead, tomorrow I am going to go to a specialist running shop recommended by someone at Striders, where they do that funky gait analysis stuff. Just in case it’s my shoes. And then if it stll hurts after 2 runs on new shoes I PROMISE I will go to a physio. OK? Good!
