We did our first double figure run since March today and have decided on a run walk strategy for York. Last Sunday we did 8 miles rather slowly but today we got to that 8 mile point 7 mins quicker than last week. Then the wheels came off. We hit the 20% hill on the Guild Wheel and it basically killed us. The next 2 miles took half an hour but hey ho such is life. The more we practice this defined run/walk strategy the easier it will become. We are aming to run 10 mins and walk 3, I know it's psycological but it's knowing you have that recovery and it's not far away so you keep going.
So this week we have the last of The Welcome Tavern 5k series, supper included on Tuesday (hot pot or chilli). Then 4/5 miles Wednesday and Thursday and the LSR on Sunday.
Enjoying the running at the moment especially now it's gone cooler.
Off for a catch up.
