I had to haul myself to UP. Super tinatamad earlier and it was so warm this afternoon.
But I'm trying to really follow the training plan. How else will I be able to run 10k in March if I don't?
Here's what I did:
5x2.2k or 11k in 1hr 11mins.
It was tough at various points. I ran alone and with no music so it was kinda challenging to keep focused and entertained. :) And my legs weren't fully recovered yet from yesterday's intervals. My shins are still painful. And boy did I feel like walking at some points. But I just pushed and pushed. Played my own coach and told myself: "it's okay, you can slow down..." or "it's okay, we'll get some new legs when we reach the front of FC..." or "it's okay, just two more..." and it worked. My favorite "coaching" words were "we'll get some new legs when we reach FC or the Engineering building". Haha. Crazy, aren't I?
But yep, I'm happy I stuck to the program.
The only thing that's worrying me is that I don't stop for water breaks on my long runs. I find it too much of a hassle to go to the car for water. I have to resolve this soon. I'm up for 10k on March 1.
But overall, I had a good, happy run tonight. :)
