Hi Shelley, Jen, and anyone else following the old Ten Mile Mark thread,
Did my run just before lunchtime, having waited far to long dithering about. Contrary to yours Shelley, I did not have a good time out there. The wind was freezing, and although this was meant to be a 40 min tempo run with 10min warm up, 20 mins "fast" (haha) and ten mins cool down; although you can see a difference in the splits here: connect.garmin.com/activity...
it all felt like very, very hard work, legs felt like lead and I just couldn't seem to stride out. Both hamstrings tight and about 30 mins in, my left knee started jabbing at me.
"Even a bad run is doing you good, even a bad run is doing you good, EVEN A BAD RUN IS DOING YOU GOOD!!" I kept repeating to myself as I went along. Very pleased to get home. 6.3mph. It felt worse than that so I guess it's not so bad as it felt.
Hopefully Friday's run will be better, especially as I have a 6 miler to do on Sunday. Found out the the place that's doing the Murder Mystery Weekend is having a parkrun take place there on Sat morning, but it's at 9am and we're not due to check in till much later in the afternoon. Oh well!!!
