As I wasn’t lucky enough to have a NYD parkrun nearby, first run of the year today. What a disaster! Decided, now I’ve finished the Magic 10, to go back and try the C25k+ podcasts again. Well, about 3 minutes in Laura stopped talking to me and nothing I could do would persuade her to start again. So I switched to my playlist and back to normal mode. I was going to do 5k, then decided to stretch it to 6k, but it felt such hard work, legs like lead that it was definitely my slowest for a long time and I had a 15 minute coughing fit when I got home. Can’t even console myself with a glass of something later, as I’m doing Dry January. Oh well, chalk it up to experience- they can’t all be good 😥😫🚶♀️
1st run of 2019 - tech failure!: As I wasn’t... - Bridge to 10K
Maybe you have been pushing the boundaries recently and are due a couple of 80% efforts ? Best consigned to the dustbin of history and forgotten about. Working myself up to another 10k tomorrow; maybe I will find out that I have been overdoing it too! Anyway, no worries for you; we know that you have a Ferrari engine under the bonnet; soon be in top gear again.🏎😊
Lol! More like overdoing the New Year celebrations. Going to head for parkrun on Saturday then think I’m going to continue with a version of ju-ju’s plan with 3 runs a week, a shorter run using the podcasts if I can ever get them to work, parkrun and increasingly longer runs back up to 10k every 4 weeks! Good luck tomorrow - I’ll look forward to your post.
Well done Sandie, you gave it your all, even though it was tough! 🙌 I’d say that’s pretty awesome effort & determination there! 🤩👌
