8km done, chaffing between the legs - ouchy lol.
Not wearing the HRM at the moment, due to it being too hot and it rubbing.
All good, on my new shoes that I didnt wear at the marathon as the others have gone now.
By the way, i was looking at some mararthon videos tonight and found this.
you can see me at 4 mins 20 seconds, blue top with a gel belt and my tat on the right arm. DAMN I STILL LOOK FAT. Imagine me 2 years ago !!!
This was at 9 miles, i wasnt struggling, but it looks like i was, my running style looks shocking at that speed I think.
Well i managed the repeats.
Due to the weather i chose the more shallower hill this time around to make sure i was going to be able to complete the exercise.
Managed to do it without stopping, apart from maybe 10 - 15 seconds walk when i came to a stop and turn around to run down the hill.
Worked out at 8.5km, but the cool down i cut short by 500m as i was almost home, it was hot and wanted to walk the final bit.
Much better than my last failed run lol.
6am - bloody hell !!!
Yeah rough doesn't even start to describe it.
So the hill is to be about 400m long by my calculations. The steep hill (375m) or the more shallow hill (415m)? I am thinking the steeper hill unless you say otherwise.
That has to be the worst run of my life.
I was supposed to do 16km LSR and I made 11km before i started to struggle.
My feet hurt, my legs hurt, my mouth and throat were dry, i just could not run.
I tried a walk to then run again but i just couldnt do it. Ended up walking home from about 2 km out at a very slow pace. i even thought of getting into a taxi.
Sat down now and my legs are on fire.
Looking forward what is the plan for the week please, bearing in mind the above and my 10km race on the 12th July.
