Well, I'm back from London, and up until this morning I hadn't run for 2 weeks. I had a stonking cold 2 weeks ago that really laid me low, and even though I intended to run on the Friday before I went to London I just didn't feel up to it.
I went to London and had a great time, but when I came back I was really quite scared at the thought of going for a run and not being able to do the distance. Well today I went and ran for 10 minutes twice with two 3 minute walk breaks. Apart from my calves feeling like rocks until I did my stretches I was fine. All the worry was for nothing. So my RFL is next Sunday, and my schedule for the week goes like this:
Monday run 12 walk 3 x 2
Weds Run 15 walk 2 x 2
Friday run 8 walk 2 x 3
Sunday THE RACE
So those of you that worry if you miss a run or two, take heart, it doesn't do as much damage as you think it will.
