training run #566

Cold, 2C, overcast.  Went for a 7 mile run.  Mixed weather, it kept switching between drizzle, sleet, snow and rain, with a chill breeze from the north east.  Last night while putting the bin out it got stuck at the gate and I kicked it instinctively to get it moving; after that I felt a slight stiffness on the inside of my left thigh near the top.  It was still there today so I thought I’d run easy and see what happened.

I’m on strike today but thought I’d get up early as usual and try to avoid forecast heavy snow/sleet.  Felt the usual right leg niggle on the first lap and seemed to slow a little on the second lap.  No big problems with left thigh, felt slight stiffness during the run but it has faded after a bath.
