Disaster!

This week started well with a 5 miler along the banks of the Mersey.

The Mersey looking lovely. Am I still in Warrington?

Ah yes, still in Warrington.

Thursday saw 9 fast intervals in the gym and 4.5 miles covered before work while youngest swam.

On Saturday I completed a Parkrun in just over 30 minutes.

On Sunday I set out for my long run.  My son came with me on his bike this week and we took the route up Sankey Valley Park to Newton.   In the first mile I tripped over some abandoned wire and immediately felt my hip tense.   I seemed to run it off, but by 6 miles my hip was hurting.   Made it home and ran all the way, but in lots of pain and hobbling by the evening. 

On Tuesday I decided to try a test run and set out for a 4 miler.  I managed 2 before the pain made me walk. 

I’ve decided to abandon the rest of this week’s runs, stretch and role the injury and hope for rhe best on Sunday.
