After a difficult couple of runs, W7R3 went much better for me today Isn't it weird how you never know, a run could be a pleasure or a real struggle, and when I start out I have no idea which it's going to be!
Maybe I am a bit fitter than I was a week ago - I don't know if a difference can be felt in just 7 days - but it wasn't as hard as the last two runs. I felt looser, and was taking proper strides - not long ones, but better than the shuffle I adopted earlier in the week!
Also, my pace is better! I didn't actually get Endomondo working, but at the halfway point I'd cut about a minute from my previous time, it felt wonderful to run past the normal halfway point ... in fact it gave me a second wind to pick up pace and see how much further I could get before Laura spoke!
Also, earlier in the week I was getting niggly pains, nothing too bad but annoying. All better today, so my legs must be getting used to these longer runs.
On another note, today I somehow knew I needed to stretch when I finished ... boy did those streches feel good!
Farewell Week 7, you thought you'd mess with my head, but I beat you
Hope Week 8 is a bit friendlier !?!
