I got up today and decided to train in the morning. I was still feeling alittle bit stiff and sore but I really needed to get out and have a stretch out.
I still dont have a heart strap ... mine has well and truly broken now. But I kinda gauge how I am by my breathing. I was not gasping and felt pretty good.
It was about 17 degs so just perfect. I started out and felt good straight off. I decided to just walk and not push to hard. I worked on using my upper arms and shoulders and the push off today. I think I kept my butt tucked the whole way.
I was feeling pretty good....while I was not pushing my self I certainly didnt feel I could have gone much faster if I had wanted too.
Total time for the 5km was a quick 29:24 and I am VERY happy with that.
On a side note. My head is finally starting to clear and I am feeling much better. My anxiety is fading and I am sure I am going to be ok to cope at work again.
