One day I feel fine, thinking I am on track to return to full solid running and training. Then, the next day I feel flat, lucky to put one foot in front of the other and struggle up the slightest incline.
I don't seem to have recovered from SFT the way I would like. Last year after Glasshouse 160 km event, I took 6 weeks to really get going again. But that event took more than a day, and just under 4 times longer than SFT.
At the moment, a sore left hammie seems to be the main problem, the right hammie is marginally better. Then the quads are fine, in fact really good considering the amount of hills and mountains ran before SFT.
Therein lies the problem, inequality between front and back. Hill training will do that, strengthen the quads and weaken the hammies, especially as I don't do much flat running as you would training for a marathon. Fitness coach CJ may have a solution.
Today was just a run home for lunch, car back to Pine Is, and back to work. Nothing special except a slow day, no zip at all.
Raining finally as I write this, so maybe a late start tomorrow, short run and try for a longer run on Sunday. The weather may improve by then. Bring back the drought.
Softshoeshuffle must be lucky his driver is one of the few not in the tug of war team. We would win against an team in the ACT.
