Feels like I’ve not really done very much at all this week, but the stats say I’ve knocked out just shy of 20 miles this week. That was made up a couple of midweek runs in the evenings and 9.8miles yesterday morning.
On the whole I have felt pretty good, excepting a very painful knee on Wednesday night which meant no running then.
Today though, has been all about the amazing people running the London Marathon. With the weather forecast picking up towards the end of the week I decided to head up to London town to watch everyone from 2:05 runners to fun runners take part and I had an amazing day cheering phenomenal athletes feeling only a little pang of jealousy that I hadn’t made the ballot for this year.
I don’t really have many words today, so here are some pictures from today.
I was lucky to meet Chris Brisley a fellow Strongman competitor, and I saw Alma at about 23.5 miles. But despite trying I failed to find Jo, Mel & Mel. I din’t see many runners I recognised other than the elites, but I tried my best to cheer a few who were struggling as people did for me last year.
In concerning news though, I did misplace my step on the stairs at Tower Bridge and went over on my ankle. It didn’t feel too bad at the time, but progressing through the afternoon and this evening after treating with some ice it feels tired, sore and maybe a little swolen. This is not positive news for next week but I reckon I’ll be fine. I’ll keep it mobile, and keep with RICE’ing!!
I’ll leave it here, because today is all about the VLM runners!! Well done to all of you! Amazing!!
