I can't thank you all enough for all of the advice I have received from many of you over the past couple of days.
I went out this morning bright and early at 7:00am, weather perfect, for my first post grad C25K run, unsure how to run or how far to go, but I had all of your advice running round my head, so I decided to do my usual 5 minute warm up walk and then just see how I felt.
I switched Strava on and off I went, consciously trying to slow things down, there's no rush! A little while later I heard Strava say I had run 1km, pace 5:07/km, crap that's way too fast I thought, but it feels so easy, so I decided to continue with the same pace, second km 5:09 seconds, blimey what's going on? I feel great!
Some time later I heard 5km, thought I still feel great, so I continued until I had run 6.1km, when I reached a convenient place to stop and have a warm down walk home. I even had the energy towards the end of the run to berate a person waiting for a bus, she saw me coming, could have easily stepped to the side, but no, she owned the whole path and was going to push me into the road! Some people have absolutely no consideration!!
I feel like I have had some sort of fitness break through, what an amazing feeling it is when that happens
I hope everyone else has a great run as well today.
