had a fairly decent weekend – putting in a 25.7km run on Saturday in 4:11:28. The final 2.7km was walked though – at the 23km mark, my legs, back, shoulders and hips simply went on strike!
with the remainder of saturday taken up with a wedding and reception (with accompanying food, wine, beer and late night), sunday became a rest day (with a late start and fair bit of daytime napping) and monday the “active recovery” day…
monday. aka “today”…
got up about 2:30am, giving me loads of time to water the new turf back and front, watch the match I’d recorded Sunday night (United away to Arsenal) and slip in the 3 miles(ish) gentle recovery run.
felt pretty good, though qute tired again by the time I got on the bus.
today is also the first day of “lite n easy” breakfast & lunch (only on weekdays), so a bot of variety to look forward to.
