For some reason, two days of rest felt like a LONG TIME before today’s run (which admittedly was a LONG RUN). Or it could’ve been that I had a nap at lunchtime (kids have been exhausting lately) and was just groggy! Either way, it was somewhat gruelling, and the longest distance I have covered so far (though it wasn’t all running).
This is what I did:
15 minutes warm-up run
Followed by this repeated 5 times:
1 km medium speed run
2 minutes walk
30 seconds FAST running
1 km slow run.
Now, because I am a few shades shy of being a mathematical GENIUS, I miscalculated the point where I should turn back from my run (a.k.a. the HALFWAY POINT). I was too busy Run Forest Running. This meant that I finished Julia’s prescribed run of 14.80 kilometres … but was still a little over two kilometres from home!
I was pretty exhausted at 14.80 kilometres, so I walked for a kilometre, got bored of going so slowly, then jogged the last 1.2 kilometres.
In all, I covered 17.25 kilometres. It took 1 hour and 39 minutes (and I truly dawdled that walk-kilometre!!!!).
