The first few run-segments were a bit easier than Tuesday; I only felt 'exhausted' in maybe the third segment.
It also went surprisingly quickly, which was a real sense of deja-vu as that is how I felt last time. Surprised when the lovely Laura said 'only two more runs'.
I also monitored my cadence and tried to keep that high on the running segments, which according to the Garmin charts was quite successful.
My legs hurt quite a bit more than Tuesday, but I forgot to 'tuck under' when running fast. On my 5Ks this isn't a problem as I have a good posture now by default, but running fast is too alien for my body to 'fall into' the usual form. The intense lower-back pain also flared up. Not too much, and easily fixed with better form.
So, really pleased so far. Not sure I will be able to sustain the pace next week, but let's see!
(Oh, and really glad last night was 'date night' instead of 'easy 5K night' otherwise I expect my legs would be screaming at me).
