Yesterday i attempted a run, it was a lovely day. Post rain (well not UK standard but the pavement got damp for 2 hours) so the air was slightly cleaner. Set out felt fairly good, apart from nose running like mad but I got 1.5km in and had to stop. I just had pains in my stomach, so walked back as runners past me.
Today I thought right lets do this, no stomach niggles lets go nice and easy. It was tough going but managed to get to the bridge without too much bother. Then on the way to the park I realised I could make a sub 60 10km. So i put my foot down so to speak and tried to keep the pace up, as i headed towards the traffic lights saw a woman racing like she was in a competition. We both got held at the traffic lights are we decided to take our lives into out hands and not let the traffic lights hold us up. Now I wouldn't normally do this but in Chile road rules are unique. Cars stop (mostly) for people even if they are in the wrong, unlike Argentina where they aim for people. Anyway, onwards I went and managed to do 10km in 58minutes and 5seconds.
I feel better for getting out there and I have planned to run 12km and 8km later in the week. As long as i keep these sort of distances up I should be ok to run the 15km in August. I can't help wondering did I jump ship too soon and should I have entered the 21KM?
I would recommend MY Ascis running plans as they are fab!!
