Hours after my run today, I have realised that I really did sprint at the end. True only the last 30sec (ish) but it was a (proper) sprint - and it felt good.
Still cant do hills lol - well did a bit more than before so suppose that's what it is about but the hills not only make me out of breath (which is OK) but make my hips & back hurt, and I know this is because I lean forward with my shoulders hunched (not good).
Actually did 3/4 of the way round the park and was surprised when I got the "work out area" that I had got that far round. Unfortunately this is followed by the hill that I still have problems walking up so another turn round and run back down lol. Still I am getting a clear idea of how I will do the Race for Life.
PS whatever route I do, I seem to end up back either at the pond or "new river" ( a aqueduct built 1613) - drawn to the water lol
