I've not posted for a while but I have entered a 10k race in two weeks time! 😬 ( put that face cos I'm worried I'm not ready) I've missed over a week due to holidays but have managed runs 3 times a week for the last 3 weeks, ranging from 5k to about 8k. Was planning a 10k at the weekend but it was a big birthday so I was busy drinking champagne and eating too much cake! Anyway I got out for a run today and is was such hard work.my legs just wouldn't work, I felt stiff and achey and managed to stretch to 7k at a plod. Over the last 3 months I have only run 10k about 4 times. I feel I can do a 10k but I want to do it well. Then another distraction was my new running watch, which has a heart rate monitor which told me at the end I was running at the top two heart rate zones. I kept slowing down but up until now I've been oblivious to my heart rate and now I am feeling that I must be unfit if my heart is at the top threshold but I'm not exactly speeding along. Oh dear, too much knowledge is a bad thing I think! So any ideas what I can do for the next two weeks to help me complete my first 10k race.😳
