well, the gremlins were working overtime on this one !
2 rest days is fine physically, BUT the gremlins certainly get to work !
up at 5:45 made a cup of tea but instead of putting on my running gear i thought i'd have another 30 minutes in bed and drink my tea.
The gremlins were poised to pounce !!!
why get up now ? there is always tomorrow ! have another rest day !
it will do you good ! 😈😈😈
I drank my tea and fed the gremlins to my cat ! hahaha
i was out of the door by 06:40 Ready for my penultimate run of the program .
I decided to have Pink Floyd 'Echoes' as this accompanied me on my first 25 min run (seems ages ago now)
set off well, with a reasonable but more importantly, a comfortable pace which incredibly was better than my last run .
im happy as it was comfortable.
i am not over my injury yet , i still get a sciatica type ache , but it is an ache ! not a pain and i actually am now feeling ok so push on past the 5 mins , past the 10 mins enjoying the morning air and the music and feeling good
seems quite soon but then Laura comes in with the halfway message and im thinking yes, i can do that again !
another 5 minutes then around the corner on to the hill ,
it was ok , yes it slows me down but it certainly doesn't fill me with dread like it did on the earlier weeks although i can feel it on my hip.
then the always welcome downhill stretch.
'Echoes' finishes so i know i have around 6 minutes left as its a 24 minute track !
the final little hill to come and i realise in quite a bit further along my route this time, tiring a little but still ok .
hill done and this time the last 2 minutes on the flat , a welcome end to this penultimate C25K Run 😬🏃♂️
Oh, and a happy cat that had Gremlins for breakfast ! 😂
