Well, that went fast! It seems just hours ago that I was here nervously anticipating Wk 2 R1 and now I've finished R3
This week was tough, really tough - it hurt so badly, I ended up with a lot of muscle pain which shocked me, I've not had that before on a running programme - the stretching has always counteracted it, but this time I forgot to stretch after R1 and only realised later in the day - I was rough! Wednesday came and I was still aching but pushed through it - it was like running through treacle - just horrible and the pain yesterday was immense - I ended up downing ibuprofen and co-codomol just to get through the afternoon! I woke up this morning feeling much improved and when driving home from work had almost convinced myself not to run today and put it off til tomorrow, but I had this urge to just do it - the sun is shining, its lovely, I got changed, realised my cropped running tights now fit, and off I went.
I had a great run, it felt really really good, so loose and easy - I covered 3.7k in my 30 mins and I feel invigorated rather than totally drained like I did on Wednesday.
I'm looking forward to Wk3 now - I wasn't, but now I am - I hope that I have a few more good run and I feel like I felt today Woohooo - nearly a 1/4 of the way there!
