Was really pleased with myself after completing W5R3. I had a small stich near the end, but concentrating on breathing sorted that out. Never thought I'd be running for 20 minutes non-stop! I recovered really quickly as well which felt good too. I must be getting fitter :).
I did the run around a local field/pitch. For the next long run I think I'll go to my local park, or down by the river, as I didn't enjoy running around in circles for so long, and it would be nice to have some scenery as a distraction.
I also tried different runners (Merrell) tonight - bad idea! I usually use them for hiking but they were specified as 'running' shoes when I bought them. They are so comfortable for hiking. I've been left with a blister along the instep of my left foot after running though. The instep support is just too much when running, and my feet moved a lot in the shoes. Back to my reliable Pumas tonight for W6R1.
