Training steps up

Took myself out for a training run today, bearing in mind it is less than 4 weeks to Southampton half marathon. Well, I say run, it was run/walk but it was more running than walking, although one hill had to be walked as it really is a hard hill.

I pushed myself out of my comfort zone today. Took myself on roads I had not run on before, and I used opportunities to extend my run. So instead of using paths that cut corners off, I took the longer route. Mentally it was tough to do as I just wanted to find the shortest route home, but physically I was actually doing okay, so I talked myself into doing it. So I ended up doing 5 miles by myself. Also, I have to push myself mentally and physically and I am very bad at taking myself out of my comfort zone when it comes to running.

I'm doing a longer run/walk on Sunday. This could be interesting.
