Phew! I'm not sure if this is in my mind, or if this 'middle' run is genuinely the hardest of the week. I seem to have a pattern of Run2 being the "bogey" run that doesn't quite feel right and this one was no exception!
After 2 rest days (normally only take 1) I was very eager to get out and run today, I'd missed it, but cor, it was tough going! First part well enough, last 10 minutes felt very long and I was very out of breath - more so than run 1. Made it, and no extra challenges with people or dogs trying to sabotage today, but it didn't match up with expectations or feel as much fun as usual. Suspect my expectations have become too high and admittedly I've been a bit of a grinch the past couple of days. I'm wondering if I should try a new route, perhaps changing things up a bit more will help with these longer runs.
Nonetheless, another 28 minutes done and still looking forward to run 3 and completing week 8. Roll on Sunday!
Hope everyone is doing good and running their little socks off x
