Listen to the body

Went out Saturday to do a supposedly easy run in Prueksachart Park (สวนพฤกษ์ การเคหะ). Before the run, my left Achilles tendon hurt a bit but I didn’t think much of it. Ran for 4 km under warm late-morning sun. Then took a long walk home. It wasn’t smart. That evening I struggled to walk. Rested at home all day Sunday.

Not enough build-up before the 10 k:

The body probably was overworked since last week race. A classic case of ‘too much too fast’. After resting and applying some oil and cream, the tendon feels better today. Still limping, but able to drive to work. No big deal but a good lesson learnt.
