What a loverly run it was too! The last two runs of week nine were difficult. I had a tension in my arm and niggles in my calves and just couldn't get a rhythm.
Today however I was free from time constraints and I think I have been trying to push my pace too much recently. Today I told myself it was fine if I wanted to walk half way through and I didn't need to go fast. Instead I added a few minutes to the half way timer and went slow and steady.
I managed to find my rhythm and enjoyed my run much more even though my overall pace was slower. I did give a nice burst for the last home stretch!
In total I ran for 35 minutes with the two 5 mins walks either side so was out total of 45 minutes. Which will be tough on week days as I will probably have to go straight to the school run from the run. But I think the extra five mins at a slower pace is better for me than a faster pace and five mins time gained. The pace may come by itself anyways...
