I awoke this morning at the ridiculous time of 4:00am which is supposed to 5:00am – daylight saving finished this morning.
I started to get ready for my run when I felt a pain in my right chest area -was I having a heart attack or is it a pulled muscle? I then spent the next hour fighting with myself as to whether I should go for my run or not.
In the end I read a few inspirational quotes and Sara’s blog which convinced me to go. After all if she can do 100k in a day, surely I could manage 10? Sara that is just an amazing effort -I applaud you.
I keep telling myself that because my run with Andrew on Tuesday morning’s is slowish (5:50’s min/k), I’d treat it as my easy run for the week, which I used to do on Sundays. However regardless of the speed, chatting whilst running for the whole 8k is anything but easy. That said I decided to make this morning’s run an easy run, just in case I was having a heart attack!
It wasn’t easy and it wasn’t hard, just a nice comfortable run at an amazing pace – I’m just so happy with the way I’m running at the moment.
The pain has gone without needing medication, so I guess it was all in my mind. A great run without one stoppage although I really needed a “p” for the last 3k but hung on until I got home!
Andrew has asked whether we can frighten his PB for the “Run Melbourne” half – 1:43:35, not so sure this far out but I guess we can only train for it – I’d be stoked with anything under 2 hours at this stage.
