Happens sometimes. I was sufficiently tired I ditched my planned morning interval session for something I felt more able to complete. Initially frustrating, but I actually felt better for doing what I decided to do well than killing myself with 1km reps which would have been slow enough to have been a waste of time most likely.
Btw, I once, no, twice actually, ran a mile at your tempo pace. I'm pretty certain at least one of those was downhill and the other took several days to recover from! :D
Thanks Sarah...I’m glad I took it out to half an hour instead of stopping at 7km. It wasn’t like I quit the run cos I didn’t fancy it. You’re right we sometimes need to make tough decisions, to ensure we look after ourselves and are realistic at what we can achieve...I did start out a bit fast! Still learning!!
Still an amazing run, Tim. Good job!
Was it icy? as well? can't win all the time!
