As I said elsewhere, today was W5R2 - 2 x 8 min runs. Not helped by my alarm going off and finding it still dark outside, biting wind, rain, sleet, all the rest, but that just made me feel more defiant.
Today has given me a lot of confidence. I wasn't entirely convinced I would be able to do it and had sort of mentally prepared myself for that but I did it. So whereas yesterday, i dreaded the idea of the 20 minute Run3, I am now looking forward to the challenge and don't see why I can't do it. Bring on Friday!!
Another useful side effect is that I'm finding all sorts of new roads and shortcuts near my house that I never knew were there!! I'm learning a lot of things about my area.
