My foot has been feeling a bit better over the last couple of days. Is it possible for some pain to be influenced by the mind? It’s almost as if now that I’ve done something about the pain in my foot my mind is happy that there is a solution coming and so is allowing me to run again.
Anyway whatever it is I set off today at lunchtime with the idea of doing my 6mile loop of Pollok Park. I would run on the grass whenever I could but the majority of the run was on the pavement.
I finished the 6.23miles in just over 45mins at an average pace of 7.15mins per mile. I was quite chuffed with myself and decided maybe I’m not as unfit as I feared. But 41miles is a different test of fitness and so we’ll see how that goes in just over a week.
My plan for the next week before the race is a 10miler on Sunday morning off road on the Braes and then an easy 3-4miles on Tuesday or Wednesday. That’s it. I can’t really do much about my fitness so it’s really just trying to do the best I can with where I’m at.
