Made it through a tough 5k run

Goal : Weekend long run

Preparation:

  • Yesterday, I made a few mistakes including sleeping late last evening and lesser than usual water intake.
  • In the morning, as a result , I woke not feeling rested. Also, the advice of gradually and carefully upping the weekly mileage increase played in the back of my mind.

The Run:

  • I decided to go and run despite not being the best of physical state and mood.
  • Easy distance and slow speed, with no need to strain.
  • The breath through the run was good, never experienced shortness of breath.
  • There was a pain in the right knee during the run. After the run there was no pain.
  • The heel and the ankle hurt during the run. Overall, my legs hurt and felt heavier.

Post run

  • No stretches
  • the energy levels were only moderately high through the day.

I’ve decided to skip tomorrow’s run and just rest without any other training. Hopefully, I’ll feel better after the rest.
