After throwing all my dummies and toys out the pram because I was unable to sign up for a race online - we sat down and managed to do after several attempts ( also managed to get arctic monkey tickets and bargain sports bras)
So all signed up to do a 10km race in santiago on 28th of September. Have tried the B210k podcast but I just can't hear Sami. So I have listened to the start of the podcasts to get the outline of the runs and just going use the old garmin.
So far I have done 3 40minute runs. Today's run was like torture, yesterday my knees and calf have been aching, nothing major but still enough for me to notice. So did lots of stretching but knew I needed to do my third 40minutes of running today. Starting off and I could really feel it was not right, so stopped and thought about going back home but decided to carry on but do 10minutes of running 1-2minutes of walking. First 10minutes not too bad, felt like a really long time. Then during the third I had to stop after 6minutes for traffic lights and my path blocked by the workers digging up the plants. At a couple of points my knee just felt like it wanted to give way but I was determined to get it done so carried on. Did 40mins of running with 6minutes of walking and covered 6.5km. Pace was all over the place today. So going to have a day rest, cycle Sunday and a day rest. On Tuesday going to 40mins of running again.
Also other half has also joined me with this running business and has just finished week5 today. So he will be doing 5km on race day. So here goes nothing....
