I usually run first thing in the morning, however I've been away on a training course, so although I just had the usual one rest day, it felt longer as I did today's run at 4pm.
I usually do it on an empty stomach as I go as soon as I wake up, and despite leaving 90 mins after eating I could still feel the food sloshing about. Also I was already starting to make excuses as to why I wouldn't go, so I'm proud I actually made it out the house.
I found it a difficult run again, especially the last 5 minutes. I know there's some mind over matter going on as my legs aren't hurting but I'm willing myself to stop, andI dont know whether it was the cold today, but my throat did hurt a bit.
I took my boyfriends Garmin out and am disappointed to see I only went 3.5km. I feel like this will spur me on a bit, however as I'm struggling with the runs I don't think I could actually go any quicker. However I am looking forward to charting my future runs and hopefully seeing an improvement.
I'm off to Japan for 48 hours tomorrow, and am going to try to squeeze in W5R1 while I'm there if I can. I havent even looked what W5 entails, maybe for the best!
