Today's run was slow, and hard! For the first 15 minutes I was really finding it a slog with legs feeling quite heavy and an annoying little stitch under my ribs. Not having a good time out.
But I was listening to David Tennant Does a Podcast with George Takei which was really interesting, and then MJ said there was 5 minutes to go and I was actually feeling ok!
And then the time was up and I was feeling ok and I was still pretty far from home so I thought, I'll just keep going for a bit.
And then the 5 min cool down timer was up but when I looked at Strava I was half a km off 5k and feeling not too shabby so I kept going... 5K in 36 minutes (still plenty of time for a cool down walk afterwards)
Just goes to show that even unpromising runs can turn into good ones 😊 Not saying I'll do the same for R2 this week, but it's amazing how my stamina has been built up - this was not me even 2 weeks ago.
