W2R2 went well. I felt really comfortable with the running sections, and didn't feel as though I was huffing and puffing all the way around today.

But when I returned to the walking sections I felt as though I was walking with flippers on :-/ My legs (well, shins) felt really tight through all the walking sections, but felt fine as I ran?!?! I even did a flatter route than last time too :-(

I think a trip to Sweatshop for gait analysis is in order at the weekend....
