Today's short program is the last before Sunday's half marathon in Canberra.
Program : 5km easy.
Before the 5km I did a set of Pete Magill drills with a stride between each drill, then 5km... easy.
If it was supposed to be easy why did my feet feel at every step that I was running in shoes of concrete? I was more than a little surprised I can tell you and it's not a pleasant feeling at all. Only 5km and I had to take some walk breaks? This is not the way it's supposed to be.. However, it's the way it was for sure; dragging blocks of cement at every step. I don't know why except I must have done the drills too perfectly!!
Later in the afternoon I had shopping to do, took Amy and Oscar for their walk and now at 3:00pm I'm about to throw myself onto the bed for a rest. I'll take a cup of tea in with me - forget about throwing myself onto the bed! - read for a bit and then.....Zzzzzz I expect!
Today then marks the end of 18 weeks of preparation for the half marathon; I couldn't have done anything more...or even better! I have enjoyed every day's program; it has been good for me in many ways and I'll start Sunday's run knowing I have done all that I possibly could to run well and I will run well because.....I deserve it!!
