Week 7, Day 2: Can You Smell Chicken?

Week 7, Day 2

Goal: 4 x 2km in approx 8:30 – 9 minutes starting every 11 mins

Actual: Postponed

She's chickened out ...!!

Because of my fall – gracefully into the ditch full of water – on my long run on Sunday I’ve got a sore back today. I’m 99% positive I’ve only jarred it so I’ve got a trip to visit the doctor tomorrow but I don’t want to run while I’ve got shooting pains down my legs!

I’m pretty positive a day flat on my back tomorrow will bring me back to 100% but I don’t want to run while it’s achy and cause something worse due to me overcorrecting somewhere else or jarring it even more so I’m going to postpone tonight’s run and start again later in the week.

Besides … I’m sure a days rest will make me legs realise what they’re missing and I’ll be raring to go by Thursday! 


  1. Sounds ouchy - good idea to rest up no matter how frustrating!

    1. Thanks Leg End. I spent 24 hours flat on my back ... not good. I get really grumpy when I can't run ... but good news - my physio is AMAZING!! Back feels so much better today! Back on the schedule tomorrow! :)
