I found that quite hard. First half of first 10 minutes was the to be expected bellows impression. Second half was stubbornness and the feeling that this would be the run to beat me.
Felt good during the rest walk (I’ve got those cracked...) and went off too fast in the start of the second 10 minute run. Had to slow right down. Half way seemed to take forever to come and I was struggling. Second half got steadily better as I recovered and final minute was gone in a flash.
Big run of the week to come and I’m apprehensive, as always. I am working at the local elections on Thursday which means being in work until around 2am. Can’t decide whether running Thursday morning is asking for trouble!
Good luck with your next run x
