Day 6 / 27.01.14 / 400km30days

20140127-055221 pm.jpg

I can never tell whether it’s over training or plain stupidity but tonight as I was in full stride I knew I’d done something wrong. I was only 2km in but my knee felt funny and by 4km, in the delights of Soho, I simply pulled up. Better safe than sorry I told myself. I’d rather fail to reach 400km in 30 days than miss the St. Peter’s Way (which I suppose that’s what all this effort is for). Foam rollering and ice tonight for me, maybe a vegetarian curry.

    Good luck. Take it easy, but don’t stop. Even if it’s just a couple kms. Good for you stopping, too. Many times I’ve told myself I should stop, I don’t, and just bugger things up more…

    • I’m a bit like that but with 6 more ultras this year I’m keen to keep my injuries to a minimum

    • Thanks! I’ve added your website to my resources page – hope you don’t mind, I just really like your writing 🙂

      • Wow, thank you so much. That means a lot as only just got back in the blogging game after a year out! Loving reading runners blogs, gaining insights into running further and enjoying the shared community it brings.
        Good luck with all your ultras & thank you again 🙂

  2. Way better to ice down for a day or two than put yourself out for a week…hope its a brief recovery. …

      • Ha ha! Unstoppable!
