So despite suffering with Achilles Tendonitis in my right heel (brought on no doubt my tight muscles and over-compensating for the left calf) and having only rested for a fortnight – not counting a 20 mile bike ride – I had to man up and take part on the London Winter Run in aid of Cancer Research UK on Sunday.
It was a bitterly cold day and because we didn’t want to have to drop off and collect our bags and coats, Ali and I both grabbed an old fleece top of mine to wear, knowing that we’d have to be pretty quick getting home in just our running gear afterwards. At least it wasn’t raining though
I finished in 1:05:41 which wasn’t bad considering the pain I was in; that even constituted a PB for me in what was only my second 10k. We immediately re-booked for 2016!
