Mindful of the advice I received on Monday (after going off a bit fast), I set an Oldfloss-standard pace (slow and steady) for these two 10-minute runs. The first one felt like it was going on for ever, and my breathing was all over the place (not usually a problem). When Sarah said 1 minute to go I was mightily relieved!
So I was dreading the second run - however, it was easier than the first 10 minutes. And I ran it in a faster time. How weird. And when she said 1 minute to go, I speeded up. WHAT???
Every run is different! Thanks to everyone for helping me to get this far. 😀 🏃♀️
