How on earth did I run a half marathon last weekend … I have no idea!!!
My first recovery run after the HM was Wednesday. I started slowly I always do… granted it was warm. I looked at my watch and it read 8 minutes and I was strugglying so I took the pace down even further. Just over 10 mins for the first mile. I could not give up – I’d ran for 2 hrs 17 mins last Sunday in the Great North Run! In my head I was saying slow run slow but keep going… my legs felt heavy.
Once I ran past 15 minutes I felt better. In the end I managed 6 miles in 1 hr 3 minutes ..my slowest time for 6 miles but at least I’d ran. Not sure when my next training run will be but I have a 10k on 4 October and possibly another HM end of the month depending upon my next run. I have to have a goal or two …otherwise I might stop and I don’t want to stop running just yet!
