I went for another 8k gentle run round Crane Park in the sunshine today to stretch my legs.
The outdoor classroom looked great and very tempting for a picnic spot.
Legs felt good so I look forward to parkrun on Saturday to add some speed.
Next week the hill training starts!
After my Paris exploits over the weekend I decided to have a gentle run to stretch my legs and see if there was any real damage after those ruddy French hills!
Having taken the day off (in anticipation for being totally wasted after Paris) I went out for a slow 8k round Crane Park, wearing my normal Luna Sandals (I hadn’t got round to cleaning the French countryside of my others).
The legs felt surprisingly good, although the now black toenail will need me to be more observant where I put my feet for a few weeks, as if I stub it again it will hurt big time!
Legs were feeling pretty good after Bath Half yesterday and as I’d sorted my 2 blisters I decided to go for a gentle run just to stretch my legs.
It was quiet along the Crane aside from the 2 foxes I disturbed with my head torch.
5k later I decided that my last few months of training has really paid off as my recovery after a race like Bath is streets ahead of anything experienced before.
I hope I can say the same after 50 miles in Paris in under 2 weeks time!
