It's amazing the difference that a few days makes. On Wednesday I was glad to be off work but on Thursday and Friday I got on OK although I was looking forward to the weekend. Today I felt able to go out for the Saturday morning run.
However, despite a good start, as the ascent started I could tell that I wasn't really right. I made it to the top of Porter Clough but needed a few walking rests and decided that I must 'listen to my body' and take a direct route home. My breathing was strained and the aches of earlier in the week had reappeared.
At least I went out and covered a relatively easy 12km and know that I need a bit more recovery time.
This afternoon I was in the car for a few hours and found that pretty uncomfortable. The roller came out as soon as practicable!
