Found myself running a Half Marathon this morning at the last second. Kept it to a paced ‘time trial’ to assess my legs for next week’s marathon. Cardio absolutely no problem; didn’t feel like I was even moving hardly. Legs on the other hand were a bit tired, especially the quads from the faster 5K yesterday. Still, aimed for 95 minutes and got 1:35.32 so the pacing was spot on at least. Depending on hills and flat bits on route, the miles were between 7.30 and 7.02
I suspect next week will be a war of attrition with my lungs saying ‘you’re not trying very hard’ and my legs saying ‘ouch ouch we can’t move any faster’? All good fun no matter.
