The goal was to do the Southampton park run for W9R3 on Saturday but life got in the way and it became W9R1. However managed to complete in 28:03 which I'm really pleased with and means I was doing around 5k through the W8 runs.
This morning I went out for W9R2 and found it a real struggle. My thighs felt like lead weights but plodded round for the 30 mins. Not sure why I can run one day and feel fine and two days later my legs don't want to play, but having done the park run I now have two goals
1. Improve my 5k time and stamina
2. Build to 10k+ as I'm running 3 legs of a 170 mile relay in September and 5k is the shortest leg!! Also need to recover and do the three legs in 24 hours so if my current recovery rate is two days I need to improve!!
Thanks for the support through the past 9 weeks, this is a great forum to receive that boost when times are tough but it works as a plan you just need to trust it and believe in yourself.
