Cycling 2:00:00  35.6 mi (3:22 / mi)
around g'gow stop/start all day. Total time 2.40 but traffic lights and what not so deducted. Averaged 17 mph.
Dads work (west end)- town (Various Bike shops)- Mugdock (up the steep climb by the reservoir- ouch)- Milngavie (Opticians)- Charing x (friends)-town (Mum)- Garscube estate (Training).
Running (Garscube Harriers ) 38:00  5.6 mi (6:47 / mi)
Disaster. Ended in tears (literally).
Meant to be 25 mins out and back along the canal.
plan- run with Jill as I could tell my legs were heavy/ I am faster but not by a huge amount. Push on after the turn around- legs depending.
Reality- Mhari forgot a watch, tagged onto me and pushed my pace on 'come on Fran we can go a bit faster' etc- went from comfortable 7.25ish min/mile to 6.45. Voiced my concerns- but the pace did not slow up (increased) and I felt myself being dragged along uncomfortably. Hit 5 miles in early 33's- with uphill left, decided to slow pace but Mhari kept telling me to hang on, and I was getting quite upset (panicked about the pace) so my breathing was going so she was saying meant to be positive stuff, but this made me feel worse , so I couldn't face it and stopped at westerton.
Mentally weak. I think Mhari and others remember the faster me so assume I can handle a faster pace (I used to be comfortably quicker) however I have had over a year of on/off injuries so I know I'm incredibly slow, and people telling me to speed up when my legs feel like lead just attacks my confidence so I get upset/ disrupts my breathing which doesn't help. No, I probably will never return to my previous fitness/speed/ volume of running specific training; but I want to be confident and comfortable enough to plod along at my own pace.
Looking forward to next week were I can put things right by finishing a good session. What I will not do: increase my running training to compensate for this disappointment (previously I would of done this), instead be patient and stick to the plan- it will come.
