I have booked into see Bex at Sports Therapy for Monday. After my very painful walk for the 5km I was unsure about walking again. As I had my walking group at the track today, I thought I would try 3000m.
My coach had given me a 3km fartlek to do and a 10km this week. I knew there was no way I could do the 10km but he said to try the fartlek.
As I walked around to warm up I was thinking I would be lucky to just finish this lap. I was getting sharp pain in my hip with each heel strike. I went through the drills with all my walkers and then when they all left I decided I would try to complete 3km. After my first km, I decided to try making it a fartlek and it did go ... ok...
My hip ached but there was no sharp pains that I was getting earlier on. My hip flexor pulled when I tried to increase speed but didnt hurt.
total time for the fartlek is 16:44
