Run 3: Saturday 21.1kms 2 hours seconds pace 5.41
Other: Monday PM - PT; Friday PM - PT; Wednesday PM - Own gym stuff
Feeling: tentatively excited
Ran the hill loop in reverse again this week - it is definitely harder than running it clock wise. And I didn't cut it short for any reason :-)
More importantly I wasn't stressing about the potential hills in the GORM!!! I want to drive the course sooner than later so I can see just what I'm up against & adjust my longer training runs to similar terrain. This wont happen for a few weeks as we're going away on holidays soon, but don't feel as anxious about it this week thank goodness!!!
Thursday mornings fast run was pretty good - pace 5 mins 5 seconds - need to knock 5 seconds off each km to reach that 25 minute mark. I'm getting closer!
