Feeling rather elated at the moment! On Tuesday I achieved a PB of 28:50, setting out with the mindset that I would just go for it. Spurred on my Queen and King's of Leon the first few kms were at a ridiculous pace (for me) but then I hit a bit of a wall coming up to 4k and I really had to push myself to even finish the 5k. I definitely felt the increased effort yesterday as I had my first bit of DOMS since I started running in September.
This morning though it was gone so I went out again with the goal of trying to do as close to 30mins as possible - i.e. trying to exercise a bit of self-control for a change! Did 29:52 and managed the final km quicker than the 2nd (the 1st was the fastest as it was mostly downhill).
Another 7km on Saturday... hopefully with new shoes!
