Today I was worrying about my slow 12k. I don't really know why. Maybe because I've had to bring it forward a day as I'm out tonight on the pop and I wouldn't manage a run with a big head. Maybe cause I ran 7k tempo run yesterday and I slightly missed the times I was aiming for. Maybe I just over thought it. The husband said he'd meet me with the mountain bike in the road section about 8k in. For support. Maybe he didn't quite believe me, maybe I don't quite relieve me either😒. Every km was tough, lots of gremlins today, but I kept putting one foot in front of the other & I was ever so pleased to see hubbie on the road. I knew I could do it then, and he was absolutely amazed at me, at my pace and the distance id already covered. We made it together. And it was a mare of a run but I did it and I'll be the better for it. Just thought I'd share that with you good folks out there. X
Bit nervous about my long run today.😔 - Couch to 5K
Good for you! It's great when runs just click and feel good, but character shows through when we persevere with the runs that feel hard from the start but that we slog through and finish anyway. 12k is a heck of a distance to run - you should be rightly very proud of yourself (and so should your other half!). Well done.
