Lead legs

Another struggle run. Thought I was mentally ready, but the body fought me literally every step. Leg felt like lead- even after an extra rest day. 
And when my body started rebelling, the mind followed suit. Blech
But on a positive note- I finished it. Once again not pretty, but got it done. 
Keep focused on the goal race in September

Time flies

Just completed my third run of week 6 training. 
5 miles in 1:02:06
Not a rocket pace, but pleased as my PR for a 10k is 1:01
maybe this run/walk business will work. 
For the longer runs I have been pushing in the first half of the run. So today I started by running 6 min walking 2.  I was able to do that for 5 intervals and ten switched to the scheduled, run 3 walk 2.
I kept this at 5.5-5.6 mph so I wouldn't feel like I was dying towards the end. 
Was definitely tired, but am pleased with my overall effort.
