Distance: 8.12 km
After the hard runs I have done this week - The long Sunday run, hard gym work Monday, run Tuesday, hills Wednesday - I was quite sore today for this run.
I took off reasonably fresh, and headed for a route that includes a few hills. The first 3 km were fine because it is flat for 2k's and has a very small hill in the third. But the rest has a few bigger hills. The condition I am in lead to me being hit really hard by the hills, so I struggled to hold a good pace.
Quads and calves are really sore. Aerobically I felt ok, but I was pushing hard on the muscles.
Next week is an easier one, shorter runs and no hills - a recovery week, and I may need it.
