Recovery run – 26th March 2012

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!

River Crane 5k run – 12th March 2012

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!
