Well done on the runs rubble and asics. I did a 14.5 miler today, with c. 5 miles uphill, which felt very, very good. My hamstring was little tight from the off so I took the pace easy for a couple of miles and told myself to do a gentle run. However I was shocked to see that I did this in 1.55 despite 2 toilet stops and a stretch mid way. Feeling really good about this and my stomach muscle was sore but didn't hinder me! I have a flat 10k booked for next Sunday and intend to peg it to see what time I can achieve.
Those that are feeling less confident about running a week in, don't worry, I've been running marathons for quite a long time and find it easier if I get out pretty quick after a marathon otherwise my confidence really takes a battering. That doesn't mean my way is right for everyone else but I promise that you will all be back on track next week!
