Yesterday I did my final run, 10k, of Ju-Ju's last plan. It was a hot day so I got out just after 8am. I started slow and steady and was doing well at the 5k point. No sign of blister pain so my triple therapy of new socks, vaseline and a blister plaster must be working!
However in the second 5k things went a bit awry. At 8k I was flagging and those last 2k were painfully slow - not much faster than walking pace. I did the 9k a week or so before much more easily. I regretted wearing my leggings on such a hot day - must look out the capris. It was a real struggle to complete the run,but I did. A busy rest of the day prevented me from posting yesterday. Today I have been limping with a slight pain in my groin and a definite feeling of having overdone things. This doesn't fill me with confidence for my 10k event in Bristol in 3 weeks. I must try another 10k run either next week or the week after.
Having said all that, just the fact of being able to cover 10k in a 'sort of running fashion' does amaze me. I wouldn't have believed it 2 years ago 😀
