So after a long 10 days of no running after falling off a kerb and jarring my back I am back in the running game. My goodness I was miserable without going out running and hobbling about. But today I was on a day off, the children in school, dog walked and good weather conditions so what could stop me! I decided to do my new 8k route which I could cut short if needed. I went out slow and steady to start and my back was good. I did a faster pace than my usual 10min mile without realising and clocked a new 5k pb of 30.14. I was comfortable to 4 miles and felt more tired for the last mile so slowed a little but I did my 5miles/8k in 50.06. I am very happy today and this is what I run for!
