Off we popped this morning, still not really believing this was run 2 week 9! Got to our field, started pottering round at a speed I thought I might maintain. After about 5 mins gap between hubbie and I started to increase , but there was no way I could go quicker! I thought he was speeding up , but looking later at GPS on mapmyrun I think i may have slowed a bit. Hubbie only realised towards last 8 mins , at which point he did a bit of doubling back. I think this is the method we will have to use from now on. My excuse is he's a man and I have asthma. I can't possibly go as fast! We made it to the end, and speed was up on last time - more or less 4k!
Now I have to sort out my breathing. I still struggle with feeling odd all the way. Not wheezy, or chesty, but just like there's something kind of tight between my diaphragm and my lungs. As I potter round I try to focus on breathing slow and steady, but do wonder if I would be better not thinking about it at all (this should be easier to do soon, we decided 3 runs with Laura as in the other weeks, then say that's graduation and go into own music). In between ill keep practicing breathing (so to speak!).
Can't believe there's one run left!
