Last week at Parkrun, I got a PB - this week I got my first DNF! (AND only after 2klms)
I had a rest day yesterday because I did not feel right - it was supposed to be a bodyweight workout day, but I just didn't have it in me. I felt much the same this morning but dragged myself along. My downfall was really that it was pacer day today - and having done 32min25 seconds last week, I thought I would follow the 32 &1/2 minute pacer. I could always drop back a little - I wasn't really looking for another PB this week. He seemed to start out quite fast -and I am a bit sceptical about our pacers - I really had no other way of knowing the pace, they hadn't put out Klm markers and although I had activated my stopwatch, it was of no use to me. But anyway, whatever the reason I dropped right back before even a KLm was completed - by 2K , I was DONE!!
Oh well, it was a short fast run - which is still good for me. I might think about doing some fast( for me) 1 mile runs around my local track every so often. Running slow and easy runs most of the time can be a trap!!!
