Week 6 r2

After a week off with only an β€˜easier’ run between that one and today, it was tough going back to my usual route with inclines. πŸ™ˆ Legs felt like concrete and my pace was way out. I went far too quickly in the first 10 mins and paid for it in the last 10mins!! I was even counting down the minutes, something that I have not done for a number of weeks now.

Slow and steady .....I know πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„

Dragging yourself over that line shows a lot of what you need to do this. That easy run is a curve ball as I said earlier to someone... it throws people, and the next run getting back to normal will be difficult. You passed a big test and now you’re into the β€œjust run” phase of this. You’re doing great.
