After my seventeen mile jaunt the calves feel very tired but I'm well please about how my achilles has held up - used ice though, 30 mins before and 30 mins after.
Having a well deserved two day break from running now. Still doing the cycling and strength exercises though.
Now I feel I can begin to make plans for my next 24 hr race: pacing plan and nutrition plan. Always bearing in mind the golden rule which is ... be prepared to change the plan during the race if circumstances indicate that it would be best to do so.
