Hello - first time poster
Was supposed to do run 2 of week 4 on Friday night - I've done all my running at night so far - I find I can walk more in the evenings than I can in the mornings - plus it's dark so self-confidence/body-issue things are less of an issue.
Did run 1 on Wednesday and was pleased with it - I've got 5km route planned, and this was the first time starting on it rather than just jogging round the block - managed to do about 2.5km there and back which I was pretty happy with.
This morning though, I perhaps got too over confident - reached the turn-around point I reached on Wednesday with still 2.5 mins on the clock of the first 5m run - at which point i just stopped. The run back was terrible - stopped half-way through both the 3 and 5 min runs and didn't get back to my start position before the clock stopped.
Obviously I ran far too fast this morning (worked it out to be over 12kph) before I hit the buffers.. This has really knocked me back - especially when I'm looking at my calendar which has W5R3 a week today(!!) Not sure what the best way to keep pace is - certainly not along with the musak on the podcasts - any tips?
