Week 7 : 19th Feb – 25th Feb
Oh dear me – DOMS of doom that were not there on the Sunday after Hoka suddenly appeared on the Monday – I knew there would not be much running this week as it was half term. What I didn’t expect was for the DOMS to last until Thursday. Boy did my legs hurt and I can honestly say I’ve never had that much soreness in my legs before.
Coupled with a bad throat and the beginnings of a cold, this week was a write off. I even missed a 16 mile run on the 24th (Saturday) which worried my training OCD. Dealing with missed runs is something I have to learn to cope with. I still find it tough but have had some great advice from the various runners on Instagram.
Still – after a week off I felt refreshed and ready to start week 8.
Feel free to comment if you are reading this. It’s always nice when people do. Do you get bad DOMS? What’s the worst you’ve ever had after a run?
