I struggled, i was heavy, flat footed and had to haul myself round. The bottoms of my feet (instep) were aching and my ankles and feet felt like everytime i was planting them it was aching and i would twist an ankle lol.
However i pushed on and made sure i completed the run, a little slower than the 5.45-5.55 second time frame but not much over so happy with the time overall i guess.
Hard work a deserved shower and another 8km on Friday
18km done, really felt it at 16km and the last one was tough, didn't have any drink or gels with me to help but at that distance I should not need them anyway. Still a good run under my belt, I know this will be tough but has to be done if I am ever going to reach marathon distance.
All I was thinking about was what it will be like crossing the finish line come April and that pushed me on.
