Yesterday’s stop-start running shenanigans where I started three separate runs in a short space of time have left me feeling pretty sore. There’s a whole lot of chafing going on, while by warming up and cooling down, I’ve also a bit of a sniffle…
When the cat alarm (thanks Mini) went off this morning at 3.30am, I wanted to just curl up and die. Luckily, I was so whacked, I managed to pull her under the covers and get her and me back to sleep.
Six am and I was up, feeling like the body weighed about 20 stone rather than 13. A five miler seemed impossible today so I Vaselined up on all the sore bits and headed out to do three at as slow a pace as I could.
At 42, I am also now discovering the joys of Sudocrem – an antiseptic ointment that helps relieve discomfort from things like nappy rash!
