This morning I was up and out by 6.30am for my tempo run. The plan this week was for a 1 mile warm up, then 3 miles at tempo pace, another easy mile then 1 faster tempo mile and a cool down mile.
I was running well during the 3 mile tempo and even thought about keeping it going lounger but decided to stick to my plan.
When I got to the 1 mile faster run I decided to push a bit harder and see what I had in my legs. After a few minutes I could feel my hamstring on my left leg. It was just only a minor pain but I decided to ease off so I didn’t do anything silly.
I’m writing this after work and I can still feel my hamstring which is not great news! I have a hill run planned tomorrow after work when Jonny was planning to join me but I’m going to be sensible and see how it feels.
If it is still a little sore I’ll take a day or two off and hopefully it’s nothing too serious. On Sunday I have an 18mile run planned with Marco so I’m keen to do that. I’ll take things a day at a time and see how it reacts.
