I felt awful during this morning's parkrun! Practically no sleep previous night ...just couldn't go off. Pain in the gut while driving across to Briars necessitated a late trip to the loo and as soon as I reached the cycle path it was just about all over. Mostly walking with some light jogging, and as I walked back up the hill that dreadful dry retching started! Haven't had that in months; a sure sign of pushing too hard on a day when I lacked fitness. Finished sick, drove home sick, let the school chooks out sick, at home showered sick, went to bed sick, slept for 3 hours and felt much better!
Last Saturday, my time with no walk breaks was 40:54... way off my Pb of 33:? but okay with that while hamstring injury continues to improve and no proper training. I was surprised, then, to see on today's results page, my time was 40:59. That lifted my spirits a whole lot! Things weren't as bad as I thought and felt at the time.
I intend to try a return to my program in the coming week: Pete Magill 12 week program which includes 4 days running but I'll start with three only and see how it goes.
Bowral Parkrun (my #53) in 40:59
