Went out for run 2 of week 6. It was a rather chilly evening despite the sun trying its hardest. It was nice to see the lambs in the fields :D. Not so nice to nearly get squished by a white van (the dangers of outside running)
My breathing seems easier - it didn't take as long for my lungs to get used to the request for extra oxygen! (Although I was going super slow .....@"). I may have been distracted by my constant fiddling with the flipping earphones for my iPod though - I must get something better.
My main issue this run was the pain in my lower legs - it just doesn't seem to be getting any easier. My muscles and tendons are not very happy with this kind of use . Somebody please tell me that it will get easier - it's not even tired muscles it's proper pain. Not sure I could run for 5K just yet. On the upside I won the mental battle tonight and ran through the pain. I'm not looking forward to run 3 - 25 minutes without stopping is a big challenge. I will enlist the support of my other half to help me get through it!
Whilst I am dreading the next run I was surprised that I recovered much more quickly after the 1st run. A few weeks ago I was shouting at Laura telling her "no I wasn't recovered!" Now the 3 minutes was definitely enough time to recover.
All in all it's been a mixed bag with this run. Some gains and some pain!
