Struggled to motivate myself today, could be it was because I was later setting off - and was ready for lunch rather than running but couldn't excuse myself. Also had just come back from a 3 mile dog walk and was a bit jealous of my Cocker Spaniel Odie having chance now to rest!
So after figuring out that this run IS shorter than the rest at 25mins decided to cut my route a bit shorter so that my cooldown walk would bring me just about home.
Run went fine, pushed myself a bit more than usual, maybe because I knew I was capable of it after monday, and enjoyed the run. Decided to try and let the gradients dictate the pace I went at and was lucky my first 3min run was all downhill. On the flipside my 3 minute recovery walk was then all uphill but was ready to go again for the next 90.
Last 3 minute run ended on a small hill for the last minute and did feel the legs starting to feel a bit jelly like by then but made it all the same.
Still one more run to do but already looking forward to next week now, have decided I'm not going to record the warmup cooldown walks on strava from then on. I know pace isn't important at this stage, but feel having a better idea of the pace I'm actually running at may help me to decide later on whether I'm going too fast or too slow.
