Comments: Ran from work seeking a satellite which appeared just as I crossed the bridge to the lake. Ran from the ferry terminal, past the museum, over Black Mountain peninsula and on a few more kms before turning and running back to work via the ferry terminal and bridge over the lake. It took ages to get into my rhythm. My knees hurt, my feet hurt (yes, I remembered my orthotics this time) and my back hurt. I managed to run through the pain in my knees and feet but my back hurt all the way to the end. I have a massage booked for tomorrow so here's hoping he can relieve the pain. My tempo part of the run wasn't exactly fast as I seemed to be running on the undulating parts again. I pushed but the legs just weren't cooperating.
I have been so hungry for the past couple of days. Tonight after my run I ate half a block of chocolate on the way home. I just couldn't last the distance. Oh dear, that's not a good strewth. Fortunately I had prepared tonight's dinner last night so it only required cooking rice to go with it so I could relieve any more hunger pains with proper food! Now I feel guilty but I still have chocolate cravings! Thank goodness I only had half a block of chocolate to eat and there's none left to tempt me!
Tomorrow is my rest day AND a massage - after the pain heaven awaits!
