Not sure if this was because I didnt sleep so well or because I've overdone it (from the 21 and 32 min runs this week) but this morning was torture. I had proved I could do 20 minutes in one go but this morning was super tough and the first 10 minutes this morning was awful. I couldnt find a pace or a stride that felt comfortable and didnt enjoy it at all. Whinge whinge moan moan! My shins and calves screamed at me and a few times I wanted to give up. I havent given up a run yet and I really really didnt want to so I kept going but it was hard. So much harder than recent runs. The 3 minute walk was really welcomed and I managed to pick up and do the last bit. I found the last section slightly better and went past the last 10 minutes as I could see my house in the distance so the end bit was 18 minutes. My legs are really tired now and achy and I feel slightly deflated that this was so much harder to do. I really hope I can do the 25 mins for the end of Week 6 but that wont be until Friday now. Maybe I just need to rest and maybe I've overdone it. Did anyone else find Week 6 this hard? Doing 5k (which on my stats from Runkeeper is going to be about 50 minutes - wow I'm that slow!!) which is only in 5 weeks or so feels like a mountain to climb. Onwards and upwards. Happy (soggy) Tuesday.
