Right from the start of the run I felt like I wanted to quit, I was blaming the other runs I did this week thinking that it was because we did a lot of hill runs.
Then when I got home and looked a Strava I found out why, I did not realise that I was running at this pace I thought I was doing between 11 and 11.30.
It’s funny how you don’t seem to try but yet you put in a faster time than you thought you were going to do.
There was a bloke in front of me on the last downhill section, I passed him about half way down, he just looked like he was jogging and not putting a lot of effort into it.
Shortly after he came past me, he seemed to be putting in the same amount of effort as he was when I passed him.
I tried to put in a sprint towards the end and pass him but I did not have a lot left, anyway he was younger than me that’s why I could not catch him.
That’s my story and I am sticking to it 😊
