Ouch Charles! That definitely looks unpleasant!
And an almost perfect regression looking at it 😂
Yeah pretty tragic! Last 2 years I've run Wings for Life 2 weeks after London and had a good outing -- but that's at a less intense pace of course. Didn't know how it would go running a 10K. Felt very smooth initially but it wasn't long before my calves were protesting and my HR was way up -- though by that time I was slower than MP! Ah well... hopefully it will give my legs their first prod to adapt for some speed for other summer races...
Brutally warm though Charles, and off the back of the cracking VLM 2 weeks ago, think that says enough. You hitting any of the Kevin Henry 5K’s this year?
I might well do the odd KH, though I've booked a few Sunday races, and TBH doing a full-on 5K on a Thurs eve probably still affects me on the Sun am, so slow is my recovery! Got St Ives 10K, Bedford 10K and Bassingbourn HM booked in, will probably do Flaming June HM again too...
Champ Charlie Wartnaby you managed it well after all with your sheer resolve n will power, even though legs seemed cracky. Congratulations for Podium finish. Keep up your recovery.. Much better races coming later n legs will fire sure.
Thanks Bijendra! I've (probably stupidly) entered another very minor village 10km race next Saturday, which I hope to pace better at least!
