Tried to run long today but just couldn’t do it. Am wondering if I have any hope of running this Marathon in 4 weeks time!!
Original plan for today was that Tamami San would drive me 10 Km from home….I would then run back and meet her and we would run 12.5 together….U turn and run 12.5km back home. I would run 35 and she would run 25.
But I never felt good. The first 10 went ok and i ran at a strong pace…but by the time I got to 20 I was starting to slow. Just felt tired.. Gave up on the idea of 35 and turned early.Stopped for a gel and water at 22km. After that it was a death march for the next 8 or 9 Km.
Tamami San was very helpful running next to me telling me not to give up and to keep running. But it did not help as my last 3 Kms were 6.17….6.20…..5.27.
Total was 30.4 Km.
Rocks my confidence a bit.
I am hoping I will feel a lot better next time I run although after today not sure if I have it in me.
I ate breakfast at 8.30 and started running a bit after 10. I think I need to modify this.
