At 4am this morning, I woke up screaming with the most amazing cramp in my right calf. Owch ! Not what I need when I'm supposed to be exercising every day, and certainly not good with a half marathon this Sunday. How stupid am I ? You would think I would have learned by now. The cramp was that bad that I've been left with an aching, sore calf all day. Very depressing. Of course, my leg feels like it is going to cramp again, and I must admit I have a little bit of a phobia about getting cramp. It's a pain thing I guess, my muscle just spasms and tightens and it hurts like hell.
Anyway, enough whingeing. BB has kindly offerered to take my race place, and do my half on Sunday. 'Over my dead body!!' was my reply, but I guess in all seriousness it's a rather tough race over the South Downs and if it's hot again like the first time I did it, it may be more sensible to sit it out... but then it's only 13 miles right.. ?
Moving on, for my day 3 Juneathon I decided to do a short run of 2 miles. I would be tapering this week for the half anway, me and my silly calf muscle took it easy. Here's my 'proof I did it' photo below. That's me having a little stretch.
Here's the summary from the joggy-bloggy-loggy site: how cool is that??? As you can see I was way out on my distance, I actually clocked up nearly 3 miles!!!
