Day 281: Running with lead legs is hard!
Friday evening after work heralded Week 4 Day 3 of the 10k training.
It was 1 x 5 min run interval, followed by 3 x 10 min runs separated by 1 min walks…
The first 5 min interval was ok…I am used to those now, the first 10 min seemed like t was going to be ok, I had to walk a few steps about 6 mins in, but carried on after a very short time. I felt slow but I was hoping things would improve after this as they seem to do during the second half of my runs…
sadly this was not to be the case!
I started to feel like I was running through treacle…either that or someone had swapped my legs for Lead ones. They just felt heavier and heavier as time went on! I couldn’t really find my stride, I couldn’t really get my breathing right, it was all in all an unimpressive run!
However, I did manage to keep going, I had to walk more often than I wanted in the last two 10 min intervals, but never for more than about 30s before I kept going…
maybe my legs were tired from the rest of the week, who knows…however, this is a bad run, everyone has them occasionally, next one will be better 😀
The good things to consider are:
I didn’t find it as impossible as I would have don this time last year!
I still went 5km even if it was slow.
I got to run in the light so I took some pictures to show you 😀 (not that that did my overall pace any good but shhh)
Here’s to a better run next time 🙂
Day 281 complete 😀
