So it's been a few days since I wrote, but oh have they been busy!! We went to the Champagne region last weekend and because my last run was on Friday evening I took my running clothes with me!! My husband's mouth dropped open when I got them out (what a sight ) it's the first time I have ever took sport gear on holiday!. I had to run (W3 R3) around the hotel area but it went really well and there was a hill included....the temperature was 16°c so it was a huge change from not so sunny and cold Belgium.
This week is W4 and I was really nervous about it. On Monday I went out and it was snowing and -1°c, but I managed it. It wasn't fast, but the main point was to stay on my feet. I was surprised at how well I felt about running for 5 mins, no stitch and I paced myself with my breathing, also I don't run that fast, so this is also why it felt good I think.
Last night was my W4R2 and it was more like an ultramarathon!! Between dodging the ice patches and jumping on and off the kerb to the cycle path, I felt exhuasted. I finished the run but I was well and truly cream crackered. I hope that tomorrows run finally goes well...if not I might repeat this week before doing W5. I will see how it goes
