Not quite sure how to comment on the repeat run.
First off I did the Dads 100m race at my youngests sports day yesterday and strained my knee and groin. Was going to not run tonight to give it time to ease off as not pulled just strained. Anyway decided to run as I have missed a few due to my toe and felt you might think i was making excuses !!! Ran 200m and nearly went home. Decided to run at LSR pace for 8km but it eased so went for it (at the moment no issues so fingers crossed for tomorrow).
So of i went and by the looks of it the first repeat was ok and so was the second. As for the third and fourth, it appears as though i thought i was Usain Bolt.
I jogged the first break and jog/walked the second and walked the third and fourth.
But i finished the repeats.
So difficult to pace it, i really struggled with it. 5.17 for a km is not even close to 5.45, but it wasnt that i simply ran too fast, i just couldnt pace it correctly.
As for the Toe, well OUCH, that is not improving but it is ok running on. Probably is broken to be honest, if bruised it should be ok now. More of a nuisance than an actual pain so i will just carry on and no doubt it will mend in time lol.
