I have just got back from W9R2 and I'm disappointed because it was difficult and my newly-installed Strava tells me I was slower than Sunday for most of the run (although average speed was the same - 8'17"/ km) , and that I covered 3.5 km compared to 3.7 last time. I followed pretty much the same route, although I just ran round a field when I was coming to the end, so it should have been quicker, I'd have thought. I have never compared myself to others on here or out in the streets but I did expect to be getting better by now.
Do you have any tips for me to help me stay motivated and keep improving, and should I change routes for graduation on Saturday? There's a river valley park nearby where lots of people run (that's a downside!) and which is flat and almost all grassy. On the other hand, I don't want to jeopardise my chances of graduating by choosing somewhere I don't know and fndng out it's too hard.
Apologies if this post appears twice - it vanished just as I was about to post it.
