Running longer and faster… a few thoughts…

Today’s 3 Rs: Rehab, Rest, Run …

Could not decide for a morning run really because 1) the rain was pouring down outside (which would normally not stop me, but I did not want my new shores to have their second run to be under the rain…) and 2) thought about taking a rest say felt like wise to ensure the left bum would get better quicker. Therefore started with half session core & stability which went very well. After that, shower & breakfast preparation and time for work.

All good throughout the day, keeping myself busy, but the eyes were wandering from time to time towards the lower table were the second pair of Adizero Adios Boost were staying since yesterday. Registered very much for not jumping into them and go out for a try… End if the day arrived and rest was the main driver training-wise…although the body was feeling better… Upon suggestion from G, I changed and headed out for a second trial run… Even crazier than yesterday..The feet were not listening at all. I had to cut short after 3 km to stretch and hoped the feet would be more reasonable… Sure!!! It is so much work to make them slow down.. Got to wait after the run…in the cold outside. And then it was evening and dinner time; nothing for the diet-oriented people: Large fish fingers in the oven with large boiled potatoes 😛

Completed the day with rehab exercises, the program done since Dubai, but slightly altered. Added the alphabet (lay on the side, lift one leg and start writing the lettrers of the alphabet in the air…) and the “clam”. Felt all good. And now it is time to sleep…

Body feels good, mind is occupied and should start focusing on the race soon…

  1. Good on you for taking a rest day when you need it! I’m the same as you – I have 1-2 rest days a week, but I don’t take them according to my schedule. Rather, I take them when my body tells me I need them. I always do a few core exercises every day, but on days when I don’t run, I make a proper workout out of it. It’s a great balance. 😉
