When I got home from work my legs were still stiff from last nights run, I could feel the tightness on the walk home, and I was telling myself thank god its a rest day tomorrow, I totally forget we had a massive set on tonight, and my bloody rest day in Sunday and not Friday as I'm on week 2 of the training plan!
The set was 7 x (2m H, 1m R, 1m H, 30sec R, 30 Sec H, 30 Sec R) H=Hard R=Recovery and with already tired legs I was dreading the session.
I got changed and off we went to the meet the other club runners, We turned up and the numbers looked a little low, we did contemplate driving past the car park and go back home, as 1) I was tired, 2) it was cold and 3) My legs felt like they were made of wood. We didn't drive past we stopped and I was glad I didn't as it was a great set.
After the mile warm up, some of the muscle stiffness lightened in my legs and when the whistle went for the first set, I felt good.
