Week 14: after the long weekend of walking last weekend I picked up a muscle injury, my left calf muscle to be precise. I thought it was going to ease off after a day or so but that didn’t happen. By the weekend it still wasn’t 100%. Not good.
Trying to be sensible about the training, and with a lot of the year still to go, I took it very easy during the week to make sure that I didn’t do any more damage to my leg. It was tough and very frustrating not doing anything. I’m up on my mileage on all three disciplines so I tried not to stress too much about not doing anything.
All I wanted to do was go for a run but knowing that my first 10K event is coming up soon – the Maxifuel 10K this coming Sunday – I did what I could to make sure that I would be okay for that.
Here are the scores on the doors for this week:
Here’s a breakdown of the totals for my walking, running and cycling since the beginning of the year:
Here’s a breakdown of what I’ve still got left to do this year to hit all my targets for this challenge:
Sponsor Me Please!
Don’t forget, you can get to my fundraising page at the following location:
The page will be live throughout my challenge this year (and a couple of months after) so please, when you can, give a few pounds to help some very worthy charities.
Why not do like my good mate Stu’s doing? He’s sponsoring me 2p a mile – which is amazingly generous, thanks Stu! You don’t have to pledge that much; 1p, 1/2p, 1/10p…it’ll all add up considering I’ll be covering at least 4012 miles this year!
Thanks. It means a lot and is very much appreciated.
