This morning I completed my last long run before I do my big 14K funrun on 10 August - it was 15 ks - and included 3 big hills. I actually signed up for this run in the very early days of C25k - when I seemed to be running everything at 8 mins per klm. I then proceeded on to run my first Parkruns at 8 mins per klm - so I thought that this would be a good pace to aim for across the 14 klm. So, all of my "longruns" ( which started at 6klms) have all been run at 8 mins per klm. So, today I did the 15k at an average 7mins 50 secs per klm - that should get me across the line in under 2 hours.
For some reason lately, on these longruns (and only on them) , I have started to get "numb" toes . I thought it was because of the winter - but it was even worst today and wasn't too cold. Even more strange is that the problem only lasted for about 3 klms of the run ( between 5 and 8) and then went away????
