AM – Ridgeway Relay leg 3, a 9.5 mile hilly trail run as part of a 10 leg 84 miles race for my club. I was worried about this race as my ankle isn’t healing as I’d like, and I know I need to rest it but I didn’t want to let anyone down. It was painful from the outset and didn’t ease. It was also really hot despite being one of the earlier legs of the day. I even carried a drink with me which I rarely choose to do. I stopped to help a young lad from a rival local club who was understandably struggling due to being an 800 metre runner normally! I pushed where I could, but I didn’t want to stumble on the uneven terrain and make things really bad. I finished it at 8:39/mile average pace.
I had originally said no to taking part, and then agreed but only to an early leg so I could get out on my bike later on as I have a triathlon coming up next week. But I rethought this plan, and decided to rest and rehydrate while icing and elevating my ankle for the afternoon and then ride my bike later. I ended up falling asleep for 5 hours and completely bailing on the bike ride. The plan for next week is to look after myself and get as much R&R in as possible to be ready for Sunday’s triathlon.
