run 10 miles okay; walk 1 mile knackered

tired

Interesting.

I ran 10 miles yesterday and felt fine. Drank 500ml of energy drink, munched on a few biscuits, took a shower and I was okay. Slept a bit earlier so it helped.

Walked a mile to the local market today to run some errands and I’m knackered. My knee hurts, my back hurts, I sat at my desk and fell asleep.

I guess it’s not the mile-long walk, it’s recovery from the long run. That said, I’m quite happy with training progress. Slow and steady with, touch wood, no major injuries. Knee pain and back pain are to be expected, and at the moment they are both manageable. I’m a little worried about the month-long holiday, I definitely will not get the chance to follow the training program.
