Pain in quad so changed plans


Instead of running 20 Km I just ran 6 Km. My quad is still sore so I decided to do 20 Km tomorrow and take an easy day.

I read an article by the Great Joan Benoit who said as she gets older she listens more to her body and does not act  like a slave to her training schedule. She would never miss a work out when she was young  even if she was ill or injured. Now in her mid 50s she only trains once a day ( well she did say mostly once a day) and only does one day of speed work a week.

Only two weeks to go until the Melbourne Marathon. True I have a few aches and pains but who doesn’t?
