Ended up having to take 5 days completely off running due to tight hamstrings, then gradually built up last week. Back on form by the weekend with an 18k on Saturday cruising at sub 3:50 pace and legs feeling great.
Planning a 90min easy run today, and kicking off with the 2k's on Thursday. Not going to push it too hard. Looking forward to a few 5k's leading into a 10k on Boxing day.
Definitely planning to keep the staple easy long runs rolling with a 32k+ every few weeks.
