After the utter elation of W5R3 I was quite surprised by today's offering - what... a 5 min run to start - pah, I laugh in the face of your 5 mins Laura!!.... fast forward to me puffing and panting and wondering who the heck has nicked my legs???!!!!! and my lungs come to that! The gazelle like ease and joy of 2 days ago has been replaced by a lumbering elephant seal wallowing away and struggling to move forward - what on earth is that about???
I managed it, I finished ok, and even managed to up the pace, but omg..... that was so hard compared to the last run - why?? What happens? Why, when you ran 20 mins does your body decide to revert to couch potato and sulk at being asked to do 5/8/5? I'm actually quite concerned again now - I haven't looked at what R2 is but I'm worried that my legs will refuse to go again, and I know its 25 on Tuesday eekk!!!
Still, at least afterwards within minutes I was feeling better and breathing again so recovery is quicker than before but that was a shock to the system lol
