Both our injuries are almost over. I will start weight training next week and will see how it goes.
Tonight we’re having a garden party at our best friends. The weather today is going to be great, around 27C (80 degrees) in the afternoon so it won’t be too cold tonight.
Tomorrow it’s Mother’s Day here in Holland. R. has a race, he’s going to try it because his shoulder gets better every day. So I will go to my Mom alone (well Bella is coming too) tomorrow.
I did a 10K this morning in preparation for the 10K I registered for next week. It was a tough run, it was already getting too hot for me even though I went at 8 am. Luckily there was some wind. I really pushed myself and ended in a time that’s almost 2 minutes faster than my PR on the 10K.
BUT … I cheated because I did something I have never done before during a run. After 5K I passed a bench and I sat on it for about 5 minutes to catch my breath and rest a little because between 3 and 5K running was hard. After that I did better on the last 5K although I used run-walk intervals (run 7 minutes, walk 1 minute).
I have good hopes that I can run a PR next week IF the weather is good. If it’s too hot (race starts at 2 pm) I won’t go at all.
