I decided to head out and do a 5km walk. I picked the normal round the block course. It is a slightly undulating course so I decided to take it easy....and really take it easy.
I started out and completed the first km in 6.26....see nice and easy....yes it is up hill but I till took it quietly. y shins were fair screaming!! I found that if I walked with a shorter stride, my hips didnt drop too much and so I was able to keep the pain in my hip and IT band and a minimum. Around the 3km mark I had some pretty good sharp twangs but they passed and I just slowed down a little more.
I headed for home and tried very hard to not push myself. My hip was aching but no more sharp pains.
Total time was 30:36 avg heart rate was 151
I felt very heavy and chunky today but I guess that is to be expected.
5km waimea and vanguard
