Don't know why - but W4R1 was a piece of cake -- but R2 got tougher and today R3 was awful. I believe my problem may lie in my monitoring of my heart rate. I am conscious that, at my age, I can't overdo things - and also conscious I have future plans to run longer distances. I also know that I can handle running Parkrun 5Ks and W4D1's at what feels like me to be a fastish pace - and my body and lungs seem OK with it. BUT, doing so causes my HR to go higher than it should be for longer distances -- if I am to run for longer times and/or longer distances, then I have to slow my pace right down, but doing so then starts to "hurt" my legs -- I become more of a plonker than a gazelle
