Today was the day I was meant to be running 55 miles to Babbacombe.
Today was the day I was meant to be running a marathon to Babbacombe (having decided the former was not going to be possible)
Today was the day I was meant to be running Killerton parkrun, for the second week in a row.
Today was the day I did Exeter parkrun with Louise (superwoman ultra runner and parkrun tourist) followed by cake.
I think it was the best of all the options! Lovely trot round, chatting and catching up on the way. Oh and the cake was lovely, shame I had to share mine with a certain teenager or in her words “I will share my piece with you!’
Happy to report ankles are recovering nicely. I saw the physio on Tuesday and he thought it was better and will give me some calf strengthening exercises. I did some googling about Achilles injuries and read through the list of possible causes. I don’t think any of them were relevant to me. Next I googled the best trainers to wear for Achilles injuries and it brought up my current trainers. The penny then dropped. Maybe I needed new shoes. I quick tot of miles done in current Nikes and was stunned to find it came to approximately 900! Oops. It seems they like me are knackered!
Time for some on line shopping. Today I collected these……
