It’s been a difficult week. Temperatures here in Liverpool have been between -1 to -5 and I need to renew my gym membership. The combination of these two factors has meant not much running outside and no trips to the gym as an alternative to running, or, as part of the schedule.
I decided I’d make up for it today by going for 12 or 15k after church, unfortunately, about 500 yards in (sorry for mixing my metric and imperial), I got a pain in my right calf, similar to cramp but not. I decided to carry on and run through it, big mistake! The further I ran, the further I was to a point of no return and I was going all the way home. There was no way I was going to walk, it was freezing. This was supposed to be my longest run yet, so I had to change plan and head straight for home. It still ended up being nearly 9k (5.5m) which on the one hand is great, but, on the other hand, I’m paying for it in my calf now. Pain people, lots of pain.
Anyhoo, here are the stats for the week…
I’ve not been weighed for two weeks as I like to get weighed on the same scales in my gym. As I need to renew my membership there is nothing to report. Next week hopefully, finances willing.
