Running pains
rikby rik Aug 17th 2010
I'm seriously miffed. I took an extra rest day yesterday - just did 30 mins of stretches and weights at lunch time - and planned to run a 10k today. After about a mile my back went again, same as last week, and I ended up doing a walk/jog combination...
Run rabbit run

Now I'm really confused. I went out for a lunch time run, and didn't particular push but still did a PB! Only by two seconds but last time I did this I was nearly sick. I'm confused because my recovery time is shocking and last night my swimming was ...

Everybody wants to..

I was supposed to play squash today but ended up running my 10k+ route around work. For some reason I managed to knock 5 minutes off my time! Dunno why.. I've only ever ran that far 5 times. Unless you count my Run The World in 1986....
