Well the new term is well under way, seems like the holiday never happened!
Monday, I attended a new class of Boxfit and Tuesday I resumed my normal Pilates class.
Wednesday, the weather was good so I decided to head out the door for W7R3 around 5:00, straight after work.
Everything seemed to be going well; usually I find first 5 mins and end of run harder. First half seemed okay, yah! However the second half was harder. I struggled more than I had during the holidays, jogging slowly on the spot a couple of times and even trying jogging backwards, very briefly! However I did finish.
Does this run still count or should I do it again, till I can do it easily, with no jogging on the spot?
When I got to the hill I usually run up, at the end of my extended end walk, I met a local villager at her house, who stopped to chat So when I left to complete the hill run, omg it was hard getting to the top Last couple of times it seemed to be getting easier.
Why did I find it hard again?
Over the holidays I'd struggled with W7,8 and 9 and had returned to W5R3 3 runs of 20 mins to consolidate before returning to W7. W7 R1 & 2 went quite well.
I'm wondering if it was hard because I ran later, in the evening after work, or because of additional activities of Boxfit and Pilates. Feeling a little disappointed as things seemed to be getting better!
