I’m not quite sure what to do this week. I had a week between finishing the Great North Walk and starting the Cycling for Hope challenge. And it’s only 18 days until the Brisbane Marathon. So I’m caught between wanting to rest and recover, not wanting to lose form and wanting to get some running miles in before the marathon.
This morning I went out for an easy 5km jog. The first 2.5km went well but then my ITB flared up (it’s tight from the hike) and I had to reduce my speed to running two light poles and walking one.
It felt good to be outdoors. And sometimes it’s good to just test where I’m at so that I know what I need to focus on. In this case, it’s stretching, resting and probably an easy bicycle ride tomorrow to get ready for the Cycling for Hope challenge, which starts on Saturday.
Total: 5.2km run/walk
