Morning running fiends
So. After 2 days rest I decided to tackle the 5k run of week 3. It. Was. Horrible. Legs felt so heavy and it was a bit of a struggle. I have a sore lower back from a rather over-enthusiastic Pilates class, so that didn’t help. I also felt thirsty the entire run. I thought I had drank lots of water yesterday, but perhaps not enough.
But meh! I am going to try to not sweat it. Bad runs happen, and I did it. Doubled up with Strava and Map My Run today and they both worked. Transpires I did the 5k in 29 mins and something something seconds. I am still going too fast, if anything getting faster. Aaaagh. I really didn’t feel like I was running fast and have to sort this the flip out, as I will either do myself aninjury or not be able to finish the longer runs. 🙁 Why is this so hard?! 🤬
