Half marathon training Week 5 Run 1

This week has not been the best week.  My first run of the week was on Monday.  I didn’t get a lot of sleep having stayed up to listen to some of the Red Sox.  I had also gone out the night before, which I rarely do, and was just dragging in addition to the lack of sleep.  I also woke up Monday morning to a completely dead phone.  So instead of getting more sleep and then going for a run, I had to go into city centre to get my phone replaced before coming back to take on the first run of the week.  As a result of being so tired, I only ran 3, swapping the Thursday run with Monday’s.

The basics:

Run designation: easy

Pace: 11 minutes per mile

Actual pace: 12’16” on average, i.e sucky

How did the run go?

This run wasn’t great.  As I said I was tired and I just had a hard time moving at all.  It was extraordinarily difficult.  I don’t function or run well on less than 8 hours of sleep.
