After my last disastrous 10k run, I thought I should pop back again here to let you know that today I ran another 10k very successfully
Yesterday I had a v-e-r-y s-l-o-w 5k on the Asics plan, and conquered a Beast of a hill. Last time I attempted it I couldn't run up it all, and yesterday I did, so I can see an improvement.
Today, I set off to run another 10k. At the end of my last (whingeing) post, I said I'd set myself up for success on this one - so I did. I took the bus up the Trail to a point 10k out from home and ran back. It's ever-so-slightly downhill all the way home
Lessons: my awful run last time was still a run. I banked the awful 10k. I realised that the location scares me Never be defined by your last run. Today's run was better. Yesterday's run was fab. Asics suggests running two days back-to-back and I probably won't do that again. I'm now knackered and chuffed as a very chuffed thing
Happy running to you all.
