Mudder Training #3
Some warm up exercises that burnt your thighs before a 5km run was session #3... yes I was ecstatic
haha but despite knowing about it and knowing these guys I train with were going to whip my ass I still went.
We were shown a map route on the white board and off we all went! I started off with one of the guys to jog walk with who equally dreaded the thought of this session... the others zoomed off (speedy haha) then unfortunately the guy I buddied with decided he would turn back.
Any hoo I battled on thinking 'd work out the way round since I'd not been aorund those roads before.... THEN I got lost, yep lost. The amount of time I stalled, tried to load Google maps and went a little up the wrong road felt much longer than it was
#frustrated then I recognised the main road I'd hit and got back on track confidently #phew ...
After the little girl lost moment and half km from the finishing post the main guy was suddenly beside me and ran me back motivating me the rest of the way, I really appreciated that time.
I got in at 38 minute to the finish post. I can't believe how well some of these guys run, they are awesome.
I'd be happy with 40-45 at slow don't kill myself pace these days. I remember doing 5km in half an hour but I died getting to it and never did it again
I got home made up I finished but also wishing I did better ... I was never that good before when I ran 1-2 times a week but I was slowly improving so next came kicking myself that I stopped.
Onwards ... I think my goal is to find running easier not get faster again.
