Well it’s almost a week since Stratford and my legs are fully recovered from the ordeal. I went for a short run on Thursday to loosen them off and still have a bit of a twinge in my right knee so I think a visit to the physio is unavoidable now. However, knee supports have worked wonders this week and I am planning a gentle long run over the Bank Holiday weekend but I think any thoughts of racing in the Watford 10K on Monday are out of the window as I know I won’t be able to take it easy once the race fever takes hold!!
One thing I am going to do in the run up to Edinburgh though is try to shed about half a stone in weight – whilst I’ve not been gaining much in the way of fat, my muscle density is vastly increased and the joints don’t care whether it’s muscle or fat – weight is weight! So, time to drop some of the treats I’ve been enjoying as a result of my high-calorie burn to try and shift those remaining pounds. Oh well – it was fun for a while.
