Tonight was launch date for my Asics training plan. I was set to run 4.8k at a pace of 8.59 mins per k. I had to set my Garming F10 to 8.55mins though as it doesn't do single minutes and 8.55 was the slowest it would let me set it to!!
I went out with my youngest for company and we had a pleasant run through the park in the evening sunshine. I have to say I found it harder going, especially to stay at the right pace. My watch told me more times that I was ahead of pace than on it! It probably did me a lot of good though to go slower as I'm getting over yet another cold and to try and go fast would have left me in a coughing heap on the floor!
I was slightly ahead of where I was supposed to be at 8.34 mins per k averaged over the run. A good start though
