Hope you are well.
I normally stick to Mon,Weds And Fri but decided to do a Sunday for a change as it's dry....muddy but dry weather!
Yesterday I measured a place I'd done my last 3 min run on Friday and I'd done 0.57km. I've been convinced for a couple of weeks I'd been going too fast so I did this to pace myself a bit more. I knew I'd have to today going from 9 mins running to 16. Arghhhhhh I was dreading that. And 5 minutes not once but twice. Without keeling over on the tow path,in front of the ducks.
Anyway off I went and I only went and did it. Was a little bit beetroot styled but not dripping in sweat as I expected...more a slight glow. Like a ladydeeeeee. :))
I'm so happy I did it. My shins are hurting a bit but I've done my stretches and the new shoes are great...even if they are coated in thick mud. Love my Brooks.
Will do R2 on Tues or Weds after I see how my legs feel.
Can't wait to eat the 7 hour pulled pork that's been in the oven since 11am. Think I deserve it. What a high. Love this running lark
