So, after contemplating what I wanted to challenge myself at after 2 years of running 5k's I decided to follow ju-ju- 's plan. I went out at 8.30am and set off on a 2.5K run. I didn't feel in the mood this morning but wow, am I glad I went. I haven't had a buzz like this in a while having got bogged down in the times and same routes for my 5K.
I completed it with a pace of 6:47/Km (10:55/mile) and a lot of sweat. I did part of a regular route near to the local airport otherwise I get caught up in the pedestrian rush hour traffic near schools. It felt good to turn around halfway and continue past those pesky gremlins who wait behind a particular bin, a long (not really that long but feels like it) stretch of gravel path next to allotments before hitting the car park and on to the homeward stretch.
I also tried out the audio cue on Strava for every half km which seemed to work well.
Bring on my next run!
