This will be short and sweet as I have a tonne of work to do!
Haven't managed to run for a week due to half term and being away but thankfully managed to get out with the lovely ladies at Chelmer Roadrunners (Tuesday group) this morning.
A lovely, slightly damp but crisp Autumn morning, perfect running conditions. Not too cold, not too hot. Lovely. We ran a new route around Galleywood, slightly hilly which was tough, but kept up a decent pace (averaged 7mins per km) and managed to run 7kms, partly because we weren't sure where we were going!
The only annoyance is that my hip started to ache again for the last kilometre. To be fair I have not done my physio exercises for 5 days now either due to being away over half term. And over the weekend I walked miles and had started to notice my hip aching at the end of a long day of walking around a foreign city (coupled with sleeping on a hard uncomfortable sofa bed at a friends house!). Going to work v hard on my exercises this week and next. Seeing my physio man again next Monday for the last time pre race.
Loved it again today, and it's made me excited about my next (and last pre race) long run which will be on Friday.
Oh yes, and I got home from my travels last night to my race number! My race number and info for my first ever half marathon has arrived and it is all real now. Gulp! 2 weeks 5 days!
