After resting since last Thursday, due to a recurrence of a calf problem, this evening was W4R3. My sainted aunt, it was hard. My asthmatic lungs really struggled with the cold air when running, but even more afterwards.
I felt like I was struggling with my breathing due to the cold, but my legs were so heavy I felt like I was dragging them around the route. But, according to Runkeeper it was my fastest average pace since I was only running for 1 minutes at a time. That pace is still very slow. Just a juffle at best. How can a session that feels so appallingly bad appear to have gone relatively well according to the stats. I think I'll repeat the run once more before trying to drag my sorry body into week 5.
Ooh, one more thing; After having a stitch a few runs ago, today I followed Laura's advice about being well hydrated before running. The result was no stitch, but felt like I was going to wet myself each time I broke into a juffle!
Does this thing EVER get easier?
