I have made a really big decision. I have opted to stop my coaching for a couple of months. I seem to be constantly injured and with long sessions, speed work and the pressure of competitions - I feel I just cant do justice to the program given to me and feel that I am just wasting my coachs time.
So I have gone right back to basics. Back to the gym to start back on a strength program adding in some core and hip pilates to help build some strength into those supporting muscles. But more important.....I have cut back the distance and the pace. Tonight I just went out and did 4km. I had no set time in mind - tonights goal was to just walk correctly and with out any pain. I didnt care if it was at 7min/km.
I managed the 4km and it was very easy. My heart strap again has gone nuts so I think a new battery might be due. But it was very easy. I had minimal discomfort. At about 3.5km my piroformis was just starting to ache...but only just. I was going to stop and stretch but with a slight change to my posture it stopped.
I had a long stretch after and then walked back up the walkway to met up with Shane.
Total time was a very easy 26:09 for 4km
Body is feeling a little sore - but that is from they gym workout last night. Pleased with this walk.
