Running longer and faster… a few thoughts…

And when the rain begins to fall…

This weather was not meant to be in the first place…So whoever felt surprised with the heavy rains faking overnight might check again the precipitations level on an average month of July here…

In bed yesterday when the rain started, up early this morning because of the rain falling, sleeping a bit more and waking up…when the rain was still falling…Well done to have chosen Saturday for an extended long run!!! Definitely not high on motivation to use this outdoor shower,I still got up, massaged my heels, did some eccentric heel raises and got prepared. Not really decided on the route, but distance would be easy paced for 10-12km. Rain jacket on the top of sport bra and shorts. And caps (to avoid the rain running in the eyes). Took 5/600m for the light rain to stop and I decided to skip the jacket after 1.3km, having to run the rest of the workout with it around my waist 😦 Listening to a nicely paced mix called “Power outage” , this was suiting well! The legs felt fine, the knee was not complaining, the heels a little sensitive…felt that the body was fine running. The mind is still to find back a bit of motivation. Generally it could be a race or something. But for now, the focus is on rehab and having the body all fine. Got the 12K at easy pace, without rain.

Stretch afterwards and then chilling out rest of the day. Rainy days ain’t doing much got the inspiration generally… Got to bike a nice uphill 10K to get T’s bike and kindly accepted the offer to drive back home. Surprisingly the knee did not like much the gear changing pattern 😦 But no ache as such.

Core workout, home made pizza, rehab for the knee, final world cup. Busy evening at home on this Sunday! Sloped the strength exercises because being tired, so will do that tomorrow instead.

Time for bed!
