Well, last night I did my first run since completing week 9 on monday.
After running on the beach, last night on the track round the lake felt really bad, every time my foot hit the ground it felt like I got a massive shock wave up to my hip.
But. I perservered, and for the first time ever I did nearly 2 laps of the lake! The only reason I stopped shy of the 2 lap mark (about 50m), was that for the last 100m of my 5km goal I was sprinting.
Definately tough to sprint after running for 50mins, but somehow I managed it. My other half, said he was impressed and suprised that I had so much more speed in me, which is a great ego boost.
I managed to get 5km in at ;ust over 51mins, so quite happy with that. My average pace was roughly the same as its been recently, so now all I've to do is start increasing my pace now. Think I'm sicking with the 5km for the time being, though I'm still pondering on whether to sign up for the sheffield 10k run in september....
