So I did my 2nd run this morning and felt great. I had really tight quads from run 1 on Tuesday so stretched for ages first, took it easy and made sure to work through my feet when making contact rather than heel leading which I've read everywhere can shoot your knees out. It was soooooo much easier than run 1. Only the last 60 second run felt like pretty hard work but I pushed through and completed it. I just checked my route on runmyroute.com and I'm kind of shocked to find I covered 2.31 miles aka 3.7k and that's with only running 8 minutes out of the 30! I am a quick walker - always have been but I'm still surprised at the distance covered. But I wondered if this was really too far and am I still running too fast?
