Phew, today I ran two 8 minute blocks and I can feel it.
My next session (week 5 day 3) is a single 20 minute run – gah!
Today is the first time I’ve actually felt like giving up during a run session. I was so tired during the first 8 minute run I slowed right down in the second half. I think it is more mental than anything else because when I examined how I was feeling there was no pain anywhere, I was just really out of breath.
Anyway, I stuck at it and I even managed to up the pace in the final 60 seconds. Finish strong!
My average pace is peaking at 5:50 per km which is great, but I don’t think I can sustain it for too long.
15 days til my 5k.
20 minutes solid running on my next session.
3 people have told me I’ve lost weight in the last two weeks. (I haven’t – but maybe I’m leaner with more muscle less fat?).
And that is enough stats for today.
By the way, when I run, I quite often fantasize that I am covering dangerous ground and only have a certain time to reach a safe point before weird creatures get me and that there is a base camp monitoring my progress and willing me to make it…
Eveyone else does that too, right??
