From carb overload back to normality

sunny 17 °C

Wow!!! What a weekend it's been ... I've had a complete carb overload since Friday starting with pizzas on Friday night, wedding food all day Saturday and ending the weekend with a chilli hotdog. Talk about stuffed and not able to move!!!

Now I don't normally do any exercise over the weekend (as these are my rest days) but by the time Sunday night came, and after all the food I had consumed over the last few days, I was craving to go for a run. I made the conscious decision to go for a long run first thing Monday morning.

Monday morning came ... I opened the curtains and the sun came streaming in. It was then that i decided I was going to run for a good hour this morning. I laced up my trainers and away I went. I usually manage to run the first mile without any walking, but this morning i actually managed to run the first 1.5 miles without walking ... talk about an improvement ... but during my run I suffered with achy shins and calf muscles (that'll teach me to wear heels all day Saturday), so after having to stop 3 times to massage my shins and calfs, and after being chased by the dust cart (that made sure I didn't walk any part of the last 1/2 mile of my run) I managed to complete my run.

I'm pleased to say that I ran 5.89 miles in 01:00:22 this morning ?
