I went for my long run yesterday. I had no idea how it would end up because I was very uncertain about my compartment muscles and I was ready for shin splints or related problems. I started sluggishly and warily and did the first 5K in 30mins. After I had run for an hour, all pistons were firing and to use a tired and overused Kenyan expression, "it was all systems go" I ran for 1hr 43 mins in the end or 1hr 55mins if I include the warmups and warmdown. I am not sure about the distance. A colleague claims it is 20K but I highly doubt it. No matter. All speeds and distances will be confirmed next Sunday when I run 23K on the track.
This week feels like its gonna be a good week all round. Shins have an ache but should wear off by Wednesday. Dropped another Kilo. I am resting today.
