Today was my long run of the week day; and I woke up with the worst « women’s cramps » I’ve had in a very long time. Thought about not running, but then told my gremlins to go away; took a paracetomal, waited an hour, had a coffee and headed to the gym.
I decided to go for a time based run instead of a distance based run - 20 minutes comfortable pace jogging, 2 minute walk, 15 minutes comfortable jogging, 3 minute walk, 15 minutes jogging. I did most of it at 8km/h with my last 15 mins on 7.5 because I was quickly tiring!
Was pleasantly surprised to see just over 7k covered, and a MUCH lower heart rate than when I first started running.
Next for me is a pace 4K on Friday ☀️☀️☀️
Happy running, runners xx
