Today was my 12km fartlek day. But I woke up with a sore neck and a very stiff back. So back to the chiropractor. I rang and got an appointment today so that meant juggling my walks. So I swapped my 10km for my 12km fartlek.
The only problem with this is that by the time I got home from work my back was really sore. So I figured I would try to do 10km but if it was too bad I would turn back.
I started out and after 100m I felt great.....fine....strong......my pace picked up and I was thinking....this is going to be ok. I got to the 2.5 km mark and thought that I can keep going and try for the 10km, but not much further on I felt the first ping in my back by the time I reached 3km it was hurting. I had sharp pains centre back and down my legs. So I turned back and eased up on the pace.
So total time for 6km was 35:30...which in its self is a good time.....just it hurt. I am hoping the chiro will fix me again.
