I used the NRC guided run "Running In The Dark" not because I was running in the dark but because it's a 48 minute run My previous long run was 45 minutes so I didn't want to push too far.
I enjoy the chatter in my ear and Coach Bennett keeps me going. It was hard this morning though. The weather was cool, no-one about at 6am.
I almost stopped at 30 minutes as my legs were heavy, then I thought just carry on to the 5k. I kept pushing myself, another few minutes and see how I feel then it was only 5 minutes left to run so I carried on. My pace slowed down considerably over the last 2k but I did it and was so glad I'd kept pushing.
Hopefully it will be a bit easier next time I try.
