.After finishing Week 9 on a high I did 3 extra R3 with no rest days then Stepping Stone 41 mins which I could not complete. Also got blisters from wearing new track shoes. Very disheartening.
It was over-ambitious of course. Changed the lacing on the shoes, got extra bister plaster and dropped my sights.
Tried the 27 min Speed podcast this morning and shortened my stride and it was easy. I actually sprinted the last minute with a long stride. It felt like flying. For a 63 year old tubby it was heaven.
