So as many of you are aware, I'm signed up for the Great North Run even though I only graduated before Xmas. Well I got a diary at the weekend, found a training plan and got planning. Tonight was my first threshold run, 2mins x3 sandwiched between 10mins of easy running at the start and 10mins easy run at the end and 2mins recovery between each. I don't know what it's supposed to feel like, I read almost muscle cramps but I found it hard to breathe and burning muscles rather than cramps, I hope I did it right?
On an aside, although I had running tights, tops and some decent shoes I'd never invested in some socks until the weekend, boy were they better than my cheap ones, soooooo comfy!
