I've had so many rest days over the last couple of weeks I think it constitutes a holiday. I gave myself a kick this morning and set off to a different park/parks. I was feeling a lot better but anxious after my last 'walking dead' run.
I began my 5 minute warm up walk and then Laura told me it was time to run. I set off very slow and steady but not confident. Also isn't it funny how when you walk a route it appears flat yet when you run it, you notice every slight incline?
Anyway the slight incline lasted for about 15 minutes and I can't tell you how releived I felt when Laura told me I'd run for 15 minutes. I headed back down the now gently sloping path. Yes I was hot and sweaty but otherwise not feeling too bad. I finished the run tired but not exhausted. Strangely it was my fastest pace to date but it certainly didn't feel any faster. So good to have finished this run. Run 3 and the podium awaits!
