Wk6 R3 Magic Runner'd

Wk6 R3 Magic Runner'd

So that brings my magic running to a close. I had to have a few days off running from my last 10k on tuesday as my calves were a bit achey, so didn't manage to get out until tonight.

I found my pace surprisingly fast, with first k at 5:54 then 5:47 then 5:50 so was on for sub 30min 5k but ran out of puff approaching 4k so walked for 10secs or so but still managed a 6min split. But then I struggle to run again after having walked so called it a day at 4.7k. Definitely a sub 30min possibility ahead though, so maybe my garmins 27min 5k race prediction isn't complete tosh.

That's me for a few days, then i'm gonna start trying to stretch out to 12k+ with some slow pace running.

Thanks ju-ju

Thanks ! Felt like the horse that bolted though and sadly the rabbit got away. Nice to lope along for a bit though :)

No it's great, I wish I could do it but can't, even on 5k if I start at 6.40 pace I struggle so a huge well done to you.

Wow, that seems quick to me: I think I'll pop down to BetFred and stick some notes on new you doing a sub 30 min 5k before England work out what the heck went wrong in Scotland. Well done.

Didn't watch the game, as I rarely do.. being a scot means getting used to disappointment interspersed with occasional joy once or twice in a decade lol
