Well there was a full moon out tonight so it was a good night for a run.
But when I run on grass and I can feel pain in my leg from the stress fracture I know I'm an idiot.
Putting it bluntly. I have decided that I won't run until I can't feel the pain when I press on my tibia. Should have done this in the first place.
If anyone spots me running please feel free to pull me over and take my running shoes and give them to Kevin Tiller as recycled shoes. And I'm not joking.
I can't run at the pace I want without feeling some kind of pain, be it a pins and needles feeling or a sore muscle near the bone feeling.
I hate having to do this as I'm such a stubborn bastard but like the Rugby coach said "You can't run without legs".
As for the run tonight I felt tired and slow and it was a struggle.
Ran 12.5ks in 1:12:24. Average pace of 5:47. I knew it was shit.
Right leg hurt occassionally so that it is enough for me to have my dummy spit.
I'll be off to my surf club on Sunday instead for some malibu board therapy and possibly beer.
Sorry Horrie will have to skip Maroubra fun run and Lane Cove and...........
