Today I bought some compression socks, but didn’t run in them because they felt funny in my running shoes 😂
I tend to run the same route each time, although it has had to get longer. It’s a loop and I don’t always run in the same direction. Today, as usual the first few minutes were really hard, then just before the first 5 was up it seemed to get easier, but then harder again and didn’t seem to ease up. At 20 minutes I was ok and just about enjoying it but there was not a lot left in me to sprint finish!!
Looking at my tracker after shows that the first part was quite up and down in terms of elevation and pace so I wonder if the slight inclines were meaning I was struggling to get the pace right. The second half was pretty much all a slow incline, but my pace was much more even.
Oh well, I finished and that’s what counts. Let’s do it again in a couple of days 😀
