Early bird got a shock!

Early bird got a shock!

I have been running now for about 18 months. Recently I have increased to four times a week running x 5k and if I can one would be a 10k. My legs have been struggling though even doing 5k but I have kept going. I am working full time so if I was to run today, it was a silly o clock 5.30 am stumble. I wasn't aiming for any speed but just to do 5k. I couldn't believe my eyes when I did it in 29 minutes! Wow, how did I do that?

Ket'rin. That's where my sons were born.

4 x 5km per week is suiting you very well. Sub 30minutes - you must be really pleased with that. And, importantly, 23 seconds under 30 minutes, too. You smashed it.

Congratulations! And well deserved. You must have run before your body woke up 😄

Nice one, Joolie. If it is way faster than you normally run, then it is worth checking your splits. My GPS has played that trick on me before now.

We always say speed comes in time.
