#Janathon Day 6 – Spinning and Recovery Runs

Embarrassing Times – Janathon Day 5 Completed

Yesterday I blogged before going swimming. I should have waited. At the end of the main set we did some relay races. I was paired up with the fastest swimmer, and another very good swimmer (the reason for this is due to my poor ability in the pool). Feeling the pressure of my gold-star team mates I set off like a rocket, only to get cramp in my right calf. Half way down the pool and I still couldn’t shake it out, and ended up having to cling onto the side and withdraw. Embarrassing or what?! 😦

Anyway, got home, and did #plankaday and #fitteam12 leg challenge.

Tight Calf Muscle

I woke this morning with my right calf being fairly tight but went to the spinning class none-the-less. Decided to hide at the back and take it easy. My calf seemed to ease up a little during the class but immediately tightened again after finishing.

I had my running kit with me so decided a 2 mile recovery run at lunch was in order. After a mile my leg felt great, and then I got overtaken by another runner. Recovery run soon went out the window as I stayed behind him for a while, before then deciding I’d actually be better doing the recovery run. I also got a little lost, so the 2 miles turned into a steady 3.5 miles in 34 mins.

I’m supposed to be racing a 5k tomorrow morning, but that will all depend on how my calf feels. If its tight I’ll just run at as a recovery run again and see if I can loosen things off!

A Little Inspiration

I’m not sure why, but a technical blog that I follow for work gave some inspiration to my blogging earlier today. Feel free to read it and see what you think.

  1. Oh dear, the pressure to not let the team down! I’ve given up worrying about embarrassing myself… as long as you do your best, that’s all that matters. By the way, have you seen my swimming trucks? I hope that calf sorts itself out for your race tomorrow. Good luck.
