Morning running pals!
I woke up this morning, on my day off, wondering why it was my day off, and I had set the alarm for 6. Then I remembered I wanted to run before it got too hot. So, off I trotted, walking the approximate 5 minute walk to the canal.
Today was supposed to be my second 8k, but I did have in mind that I might do the 9k if I felt ok. The first half of the run went well, I seemed slightly quicker than usual, and for some mad reason seemed incapable of going slower than about 7:05/km. and to cut a long story short, that’s about what I did for the rest of the run. I think!
I say “I think”... at some point around 4K but before I turned round, my tracker paused itself. Thanks for that! I normally turn round when I hear the voice prompt, but it never came, and I realised I’d gone way past the 4K point. Fairly soon after that I did turn round and investigation when I got back showed that I had indeed run 9k. So there! Not exactly planned, but I’m happy I’m also happy that I seemed to have managed a fairly consistent 7:05/km throughout.
So, yeah, that happened. But I feel good, and over the moon that I managed 9k without too much difficulty.
Happy running folks!
