Run 16km + earache

PM. Run 16km/1:16, steady easy, HR141(153)

Woken up at 5 a.m. by a pain in my left ear. It just throbbed and throbbed all day, although I managed to dull it down a bit with some paracetemol. It occurs to me that that’s the first time I’ve taken any painkillers for months and months. Anyway, it made me feel a bit sorry for myself most of the day, although I managed to drag myself out into the wind and rain for a decent run this evening. Took it steady, I’m racing tomorrow. Right achilles is aching again – I need to get stretching it.
