So today is week 2 of my training schedule to get up to a 10k race mid December. I went to the gym all hyped up after my successful park run on Saturday when I finished in 32.55.
Slow and steady was my mantra (I do listen oldfloss) and I set the speed slow with the thought that it took me just over 39 mins to run 5k last Monday easy peasy, that must be the right speed for 5.5k.
It was hard (and a bit boring although radio 4 did its best) and I was happy with the time (42.54) (the treadmill is a must I apologise) but now it’s 21.49pm and I’m tucked up in bed ready for sleep.
I am sooooo tired!! Is every longer run going to hit me like this? It’s taken every last ounce of energy out of me. Please tell me I’ll get stronger and when that might happen.
