So...the end of my third consolidation weeks and 12 weeks in to this running malarkey 😬 I did my first Park Run this morning. Time was 38.48 which I was quite pleased with as was thinking about 40mins. 🙌🏃♀️ so the time was good but I did have to stop about 4 times (just for a few seconds maybe) - so my questions are as follows :-
1. Quite clearly I went too fast at the beginning, although maybe not by some people’s standards, but this is me. I have noticed over the last two weeks that my speed has improved to the detriment of distance and I can’t seem to slow it down. It might be because I was tired this morning as didn’t sleep well due to worrying about said Parkrun.
2. Is it just a psychological thing that makes me stop because when I stop I have a word with myself and re-start again!!
3. I felt extremely nauseous at the end of the run which I think was due to eating some porridge this morning, I don’t normally eat before a morning run other than a banana but didn’t eat much last evening so was worried about fuel. Or was it that I was anxious about the run itself?
All in all it was an okay run, feel bad about the little stops as felt on form this morning, plus there was quite a steep hill about half way round😳😳😳🐌🐌🐌
Anyway thanks for listening, I feel better now I’ve got this of my chest..I did say to OH this morning “that’s it I can’t run 5K I’m not doing it anymore.” To which he just laughed😂😂😂
I think before I do anything else I need to run 5K comfortably. Lots of happy running VRB’s 😘
