Well that was interesting got caught at about an hour in with toilet needs, tried to reach the end of. 20km but couldn't so had to run home. I was strong and would have completed the 20km, but stopped for too long and could get the body going again. At 14.3km I was in total control as you would expect with no aches or pains, apart from needing to stop. First run ever I think where the body took over lpl.

Well that felt like a disaster of a run.

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

Ok will do, and I assume 18km on the Sunday runs?

Got a mate at work who has decided to take up C25K, i think he got bored of listening to my running stories and wanted to make some of his own lol.

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.

Great thanks. 

I intend to run on Sunday, so if the plan is not ready in time I will do the usual 16km LSR.

Cheers LG.

Simply WOW, but I know you will tell me off for my heroics, but i couldnt help myself in a race situation.

Just got back from my 10km Run in the Dark and my chip time is showing 53:31. However my watch showed the distance at 9.6km. So not really a PB of sorts.

However if i take my average time of 5:33 and take 4/10ths of that it gives a revised time of 55:44. My previous PB was 56:52.

In other words, despite doing the Survival of the Fittest on Saturday I still managed to effectively knock over 1mins off my PB.

Ok you can tell me off now for pushing it, but i simply couldnt hold back. 

What is even better is that i felt like i could have gone another 30 seconds faster, so sub 55 is definately possible.
