22nd August – Hm some recovery run

Published August 22, 2011 by fitflo

Tonight was my first run since last Monday, and the plan was to go slow and steady. It started off well, I was great at the slow bit and was quite steady but then my achilles started hurting and I slowed down even more. Cheryl was great and stayed with me and we dropped right back from the group. We often bumble off on our own so we knew they wouldn’t be too worried. A little further on one of the other (faster) groups started to overtake us and one very nice man not only stopped to see if we were OK, but also stayed with us for the rest of the way looping back to make sure that I was OK – that’s the Striders spirit!

Unfortunately he also took us on a route a mile longer than the one we planned and as he was quite a bit faster than us, he also ended up being our unofficial pacer and much of the bits we ran ended up at sub 10min miles – eeek! I must ask him if he is available on the 9th October…
