One of the good things I found about not pushing myself too hard was that I hardly ever, if at all, took an injury, never strained anything. I could do much more the same day, not feeling exhausted and the next day felt better.
Last night at the base of my arthritic big toe I felt pain as I walked. It's with me this morning. The result of pushing myself too hard this week. I'm hoping that it will have recovered by Monday morning so I can do a slow run and keep to schedule.
Lesson - never, Never, NEVER overextend!
