Not really sure how this running business works, but last weekend having no set distance in my mind to run, I just put one foot in front of the other, and managed my longest run yet of 14km. I was elated! it felt good basically from start to finish, and even at the end i felt like I could have gone further!
well after a 3.6km run mid week, I had a day off from work today, and as the sun was shinning decided to get myself out there and go for a 10km, thinking that would be more than do-able after achieving the 14km the weekend before!
Well, that couldn't be further from the truth! I only managed 7km, half the distance of my previous run, and every km of it felt a struggle! I had to have plenty of walking intervals, and slower than usual!
I know I should still be happy that I managed 7k, after all this time last year couldn't manage 700 metres let allowed 7km!, but how come one run can be so good, and another pretty rubbish!
