Bobbin Head 5 Hills

The hip is still giving me grief so I’ve laid off the HuRTS sessions for the time-being. I rested for four consecutive days last week. It’s driving me nuts – I am so in the mood to smash myself with a hard training block!

On Sunday I headed up to Bobbin Head with JW for his 5-hill circuit. About 25km into the run I caught my left foot (good side) on a rock and in the process of saving myself from falling gave my already dodgy hamstring a painful tug. I was left with a very short stride to shuffle the last 10 km.

Sunday: 35 km of single-track, stairs etc. in around 4 hours. 1250m up/down.

Monday: rest

Tuesday: 15 km easy. Plenty of stops to stretch out the hip/hammie.

Wednesday: 20km at 4:15 avg.

Yesterday’s 20km felt really good but my hip is tightening up all the time. If I don’t stop to stretch every few kilometres then I’m getting sharp little stabby pains and a progressively shorter stride as my hamstring tightens up. Massage tomorrow and then if I’m still struggling after the weekend I’ll be off to the physio.

    Sounds like time to let Tiger get the needles out…
