I decided to do my penultimate week 9 run as a park run, with my fit partner and son. So I finished it but with still a kilometre and a half to do so I carried on running. Slow pace but I did it ! I actually ran to the end and came in just under 50 mins. I felt a massive sense of achievement! 😃
But I realise I have gone off programme and look forward to doing my last run in usual fashion. I so wanted to do the 5k thing but I wonder about the wisdom of it just yet. I felt great at the time, a little more tired but not too bad at all. I did get ocular migraine afterwards which I occasionally suffer from, but haven’t had after a run before, (but can get after exercise.) I want to do park run again but not sure, I know I could run and walk last bit. Have I been caught up in my own wanting to be something I’m not quite ready for? I was SO chuffed to do it but want to think long term. Any thoughts?
