Taman Seputeh Hill Training – 11 June 2013

Route: Le Chateau - Taman Desa Seputeh
Distance: 5.63km (Garmin)
Timing: 30:27 for 5:24 min/km pace

This is getting out of hand! Day 2 and the quads and hammies refused to let – I’ve never had such prolonged soreness, aches, DOMS from a run. Yes, strength training (which can last up to 4 days…just saying) but runs??? And it wasn’t even a fast or difficult run. What gives?!?! So people…do you get soreness from runs? And if affirmative, how long does it last? More importantly, what’s your arsenal? I’ve babied it, foam rolled, taking in extra nutrients (aka eat like a pig!) and upped the supplements.

Home to train station (3.036km; 16:58)
Chit chat on the first and thank goodness it was a downhill - hey we can’t kill the motivation right away, right? Hill climbs on the second and third and guess who followed me to Seputeh Heights? Bingo! Although he dropped back after we turned around.

Train station to home (2.594km; 13:26)
Decided a short run would be enough the shake the legs lest I end up crippled in bed for 4 days! Now that we’re done with it, I wouldn’t be too sure if a just under 5 and 5 min pace on the climb back to Le Chateau was a good idea.
