Bay run!

I finished at hospital early today, so decided that despite not having run any distance for a while, I’d give the Bay run a go. It’s perfect running weather at the moment – not too hot, but still nice and sunny. What better track to run and admire the slowly setting sun?

It wasn’t all peaches and cream though. 15 minutes in I got a stitch that lasted a good 20 mins. It wasn’t too bad that I had to stop and walk though, so I just pushed through it. With 15 mins to go I also noticed my knees were hurting – I hope that is something that will go away rather than continue if I try to do this more often.

All up I did the 7km in 45-50min (I forgot to look at my watch until after I had finished stretching). I was pleasantly surprised that I made the whole thing without having to stop and walk.

A few hours later and I can feel my calves are tightening. It feels good knowing that I pushed myself today.

Let’s see how tomorrow feels though eh?

It's been a long time since I felt that "post exercise" tightness. It is such a good feeling.

It is good hey, as long as it doesn't hurt tooooooo much. Then it's just painful :)

Aww thanks Steph. It's not much compared to most people, but it's more than I've done lately!!

"Feel the burn" hey. Sounds like a cheesey slogan I've heard before.....but where?

Great run hon and the Bay sounds like such a great place to do it. I've always wanted to walk it. A plan for summer! I love that post exercise feeling, even if I feel like I'm gonna die ;-)
