I just really struggled last week with running, was determined to do 10km after four days rest. Went for a 20mile (flat) cycle ride yesterday. Woke up today to a lovely sunny day in santiago, today's temperature will reach 26 degrees, so dug out my running shorts and vest. I struggled 3 km in and wanted to stop, 5km was hard but managed to do 10km in 1hour and 7 minutes so pleased with that. Need to do a 7km and 5 km some time this week then shorter runs of 6km and 5km before the 10km race on 28th September.
I wanted to sign up for another 10km in November and December so that I have a 10km race each month until the new year but I might see how my race in September and October go first.
Off to Brazil tomorrow fingers crossed the weather cheers up a lot.
