So, after a 6 day break, I came back tonight with W3R3. I have been on a diving trip, so you're not supposed to do "proper" exercise after diving, so I had to take a little break whilst away, however I got back late last night so after work tonight this was my first get back out there run.
First mistake was to run almost straight after dinner, with only about a 20 minute let it go down period, not a good move.
I went to my local secluded school playing field, only to find three youth football matches about to start. Undaunted I decided not to run away, and to do the run as usual, but use the unused part of the field so as not to get in the way of the football. This is a good thing because I've been scared to face people when running up to now, especially on the walking stages.
Anyway, I did the first 90 secs running and the same walking and got half way through the first run, when I made it round to the football side of the field. Vanity won out and I increased my pace whilst going past them. Stupid, because just increasing the pace for that minute or so really hit me for the rest of the session. I won't be doing that again.
I found it generally hard tonght, mostly because of kicking on like an idiot, but also the short break made a surprising difference.
My weeks are now out of sync, because of the diving, so Wednesday will infast be W4R1 - I've seen the synopsis, and that scares me
