Another long one under my belt

Did another 3 mile run in 41 mins today. That knocked 2 mins off the last time, but more importantly its only the second time Ive done it so Im happy.

It had its hard parts and less hard parts.

I always start off not knowing if I can manage to run the full distance, knowing I'll be dissapointed if I have to walk some.
Legs were sore even after 4 days off but still carried on being the trouper that I am. Usually once you get into the run these niggles go away but they didn't today.

After 15 mins it got easier, mainly as I was going down hill and could take some deeper breaths.
Was glad to get the last hill out of the way and the last 500 yards I seem to be able to speed up.

I want to try and get some speed runs into my other ones so next run will run for 10 mins warm up then do a few metres at a faster pace then recovery pace a few times then the last 5 back down to normal pace. Hope it goes ok but it sounds hard....

good today

Today went for an easier run timewise with Pen, she's easing back into it after a weeks holiday and shin splints last run.

Went good, cold to start but weather was good. No rain today. Wasn't easy but wasnt horrible like yesterday. Stiff now but enjoyed run

Yesterdays run felt rubbish....was hard work from the start and it kept being hard work all the way through. Felt like something was sitting on my chest and I couldnt take deep breaths. Even had to walk for a couple of mins 3/4 of the way through. Ah well.

Hope friday is a good one. Want to look for some off road runs
