Well, after smashing my PB for 5k on my last two runs and managing my first 10k over the Easter weekend, my run yesterday was horrible!!!
I couldn't be bothered to go out- which is so odd for me!- my legs felt like lead. The gremlins were well and truly out in force. Every step seemed like a nightmare! I did 6k in 40.27 which is pretty good (my long run pace is generally 7mins per km). I had hoped to run 8k but I just couldn't go any further.
I have no idea why it was so bad. Maybe I left it too late in the day (I went out at 4pm, and I generally run best in the mornings). Who knows! I just hope my next run is better. Might have a couple of days off til Wed, maybe that'll give me the motivation again.
One positive though, I've been keeping tracking of my runs and I've now run 100k this year!! Which I'm delighted about.
Happy running all
