I was not feeling it today. Even though it was sunny I still felt really cold (stop chuckling Tammy! lol ) it was 14 degs but there was a chill in the air and I am a sook when it comes to cold. I have not been able to get warm all day.
I headed out along Atawhai as this would give me the best indication of how I will go on Sunday. The first km felt like I was walking in sticky mud....I felt really stiff and clunky. I got out to the 3km mark and turned back. I was just starting to feel sharp pains in my left glute and I tried hard to engage my glute meds but the pain stayed. It didnt get worse so I kept walking. I was not pushing hard today and I did find that my breathing was better.
I was pleased to finish the 6km and I found that once I finished my glutes hurt more while just walking back to the car.
total time for 6km 34:45 avg heart rate 154
Doesnt bode well for a fast race on Sunday, but it will be nice to just be out with mates.
6km out and back atawahi
