I am pleased to report that my legs still work. Having a desk job is not great when you’ve run 20 miles, especially as I’m so busy that I just get lost in what I am doing and forget to get up and stretch my legs. However, having said all that my legs have been surprisingly okay. My shoulders were a bit sore…I must try and remember to shake them out and relax them a bit more when I do a longer run.
I had a recovery run in my plan for Monday but I decided against that for a couple of reasons.
- I didn’t want to run on tarmac (which I have to do if I run at lunchtime) and I didn’t have time to run after work
- I felt a bit knackered!
