Running longer and faster… a few thoughts…

Rest, Morning and Lunch…

Multiple day post… Lots to do this week really!

Wednesday:
Full day east, only eccentric heel raise done. Heel felt ok although a bit tired. No stress for training, just rest (well, lots to do at work and at home, but nothing on running…)

Thursday:
Decided for an early morning run. Not that I felt really for it when the clock rang at 4:50am though… Did not warm up the heel before the run so it was feeling a little but at first . Had decided an easy 10K, but after 4 km it felt nice and I planned to extend it to 12K… Turning right on the road at a crossing point, I quickly calculated it would make the run close to 15K. By the time I reached home, had completed 16K… Felt really nice of course afterwards and had a nice day at work as well. But got really tired in the evening, so headed to my pillow around 8 pm already… Must have slept shortly after!

Slope not to difficult but not easy either

Sun going up behind the bridge...

Friday:
Planned rest day, but after a morning of non-stop meetings, felt like the brain needed some oxygen. So lunch run under hot sun it became. Took the route of the race I will not run on Saturday (to preserve my heel), which turned into a nice paced 10K. Sweaty but happy, had plenty of energy to continue the day!
