After run 1 I was feeling great but then life got in the way. Between sick kids and getting sick myself it has been nearly 3 weeks. So, I got out there this morning for run number 2.
And it hurt! My goodness did it hurt. But I kept going. At just over 20 minutes I was ready to stop, but I picked a point further ahead that I knew I could reach and just aimed for that. When I reached that point, I did the same again. By then it was only 2 minutes to go so I just kept going. It was more of a shuffle than a run but I was moving. And I made it!!
A quick look at the heart rate graph explains why it hurt so much. Distance-wise, somehow it was only 100m less than last time. A day or two of rest and on to the next one!
PS - does this count as run 2 with so much break in between? Am I ready to graduate?? Maybe that can be a Christmas present to myself on Tuesday 😊
