Going faster…

Slower.

Despite my attempt to run faster in this morning’s run, my watch painted a different story. This morning’s run started off okay and I felt that I was going faster. As I progressed and felt pretty good, I thought that I should pick up the pace a little. The pain started coming and I realised that it was coming from the knock that I got yesterday at my left knee. Not wanting to aggravate any potential injury that I did not know, I slowed down my pace a little. That’s when the rhythm started to go off. It was quite a struggle from then on.

The cramps started happening at the shins, the calves and followed by the thighs. I kept pushing on but it was a real effort. Breathing rhythm was also off and there were some instances where I almost wanted to walk. I drank more water than usual and the run ended 2 minutes slower than usual with my computer showing that I’ve burnt less calories. On hindsight, maybe I should have gone slower to go faster…
