Having returned to England from Italy, we didn’t get around to running again – too much shopping and family lunches to do. So once we were in Spain, we did a preemptive run around Retiro before that night’s wedding – the reason we went to Europe at this time of year.
It was very hot and so we ran around the park trying to stay in the shade as much as possible. Thoughts were focused on the wedding and how a Spanish wedding would differ from an Argentine one and then already about returning to Buenos Aires, since we were leaving the next evening. Once back home it was time to start training for the half marathon and if all goes well the marathon in October. But they’ll both need lots of luck and controlled training if I’m not to get injured again and miss them both. Even as I was having these thoughts my long-standing calf injury came back to tweak me.
