Hence the improved pace.
Having had a run of going out every other day and feeling really energised, I hit a low: so I've been a good girl TedG and taken 3 days off after the family run on Saturday. Wouldn't it be fun if I could go this fast (and I realise it isn't fast to most of you) without it being downhill. Seriously, I think I need to start working on my pace. I know it's all about enjoying running for its own sake, and I do, but I want to be able to do public runs some time, and also to run with others. My girls left me behind on Saturday. I have someone coming to run with me next week - she wanted a running buddy - but I'm way slower and it's going to be frustrating for her if we run together more than once in a while.
So suggestions folks please. Do I carry on as I am and gradually improve, or should I start doing some shorter training runs, working on speed?
Excuse the selfie. I'll get to the end of my wardrobe soon and spare you all!
