On Wednesday when I went on my run, I had been planning to do 8 miles, but this lovely cut on my heel stopped me at 5.5...
This was the plan...
What actually happened was I went out for a 14.94mile run which included a lot of fed up walking!
The Garmin took a long while to find signal. I know
it didn't take me as long as it said to do my first mile. This then resulted in
the next three miles being too quick. I had had nothing in my legs from the
very beginning and had felt exhausted before I even started the run. I stopped
three a couple of times between 5m and 6m to change the settings on my watch to
display the current pace rather than the average overall pace. I got a little
lost between miles 6 and 7...ended up coming out of a private road. Turned
right towards Titchmarsh and had to climb along railings to stay
minimally dry from the water that was up to my shins. Very proud of
myself but 0.5miles down the road the water was mid-thigh height so had to
turn back and walk along the A14. (Wasn't going to run with my back to
the traffic). Stopped to ask a couple directions about mile 10. Fed up
and cold by this point so ended up walking patches back.
