Usually, I run up and down a woodland track - nobody about, and I think it's been kinder to my previous ailments, - (knee and groin!) Yesterday I was working on the Wirral however, so I whizzed over to West Kirby and the sun came out! I had enough visual delights - the grasses, dunes, boardwalks, sunlight on Hilbre Island and a good breeze to keep me distracted enough to make it through the 20min run. (Wk 5 Run 3) I wanted to set myself up to achieve it.
I did it too, I was not out of breath at the end and was happy with my pace throughout, running on the sand for a bit was hard work. But I was surprised however at how much emotion bubbled out at the end, all teary eyed I was. It must have been the relief? Today however I've been in 'bad mood'? Is it my body recovering do you think? - are there hormones bouncing about during recovery?
