The surprising thing about this morning’s run though, was that even with the walk breaks, I was pretty much at the same pace overall as I was back in February when I ran in the Chichester Priory 10K. In fact, today I was a whole second faster!
With only one week to go until the Race For Life 10K, I know that I’m not going to run anything close to my PB, but I don’t really mind. I’m gradually learning to accept that progress isn’t always a linear thing. Sometimes we have to go back before we can move forward, and I’m totally fine with that.
I’m not planning on doing any more races for a while after next weekend. Instead, I plan to get back into parkrun and just have some fun with my running without the pressure of race days and training schedules.
Of course, I’ll still be running and blogging as always, but I’d like to try out some different types of workout and just enjoy running for the sake of running. Besides, it’s summer now and I’m just not very good in the heat.
How’s your running going? Do you have any races lined up for the summer months? How do you cope with running in the heat? Please share your thoughts in the comments.
