Blimey, it was surprisingly warm this morning at 04:45. The sun was just coming up, but the air was stuffy and humid.
Did a (partially) new route, which took in some inclines- nice to throw in an extra challenge.
I too had to break out the shorts today. I can also confirm that increased airflow = a lot more comfort.
Legs felt really heavy, and about 10 minutes in, it felt like a real slog. Pushed through the gremlins, and kept going on autopilot.
It was like running through treacle on the inclined finish, and I was glad to get it done.
On the positive side, my stamina is definitely increasing- my recent runs have been nearly 4km. I still marvel at the fact I can somehow propel myself this far.
Distance isn't important on C25K, but I finished today's run in the park where I started my first tentative steps on wk1, and that brought a smile to my face.
Not for the first time recently, my legs eventually felt fine, but only after I'd finished the run, and the post-run walk.
Sweatily onwards and upwards!
