I went and saw bex this morning. After taking a leap off the ladder earlier in the week, I landed heavy on my right leg and jarred my hip. She strapped me up for the weekend with PINK Kensey tape. I love this stuff.
I headed out for my 12km fartlek at 4.30pm, it was later in the day and pretty warm for an autumn day. I had been drinking water during the day but I was pretty dry when I started out. My first km was slow (for me) but I did start from cold and it does go up and down over rail way lines ... so that can add a few seconds I guess. I was just not feeling it today and to feel that way in the first km is not a good omen for the rest of the walk.
I had a brief stop at 3km due to tummy discomfort but I managed to sort it and carry one. I got to 5km in about 28.20 so I was relatively happy with that. I turned at 6km and could feel my hip aching so I stopped briefly at 7km to stretch and that did make it feel better. I carried on but was finding it hard to pick up for the fast 500's (they were avg about 2.44min) I tried to pick up and push for the last couple but I was pretty done. Not really sure what was going on here. Just was not feeling it at all.
