95 minutes in zones 1&2. My legs ache and I only ran 9.23 km. Average pace 9.51min/km. I’ve reached a stage where I’m not enjoying the prospect of my training runs as much as I was, and it isn’t till halfway through a long run that I begin to really enjoy myself. I don’t seem to have the stamina I had two or three weeks ago and have had a couple of runs when I felt tired and doubted my ability to get round a half marathon distance. Whether this is due to fatigue or mind stuff I don’t know.
Lovely day: sunny and warmer than I expected, which was a nuisance as I put leggings on this morning and regretted not wearing shorts or capris.
I met another member of the Lonely Goat Running Club: we recognised each other from our Lonely Goat T-shirt’s. Much exclaiming of goat! goat! and the taking of a two person selfie. We exchanged names, and info about our run: she’s training for her first 10k race. Then we said goodbye and went our separate ways. We will be linking up on Lonely Goat Facebook page later though, I’ve no doubt.
