New Programme - Run in the Sun!! πŸ‘Ÿβ€οΈ

Hi Runners

Well, I was suitably pumped up from my PB and went out with a bit of a pep in the step this morning. Having committed to run for fun and aware of my upcoming Charity Run next month, I have created a 5k plan on my App to run my best 5k on the day.

Today was just 2k and I definitely felt good about that! I knew it would be short enough distance for the little park nearby and it wouldn’t be a big stretch straight away. The sunshine felt so good on my face! β˜€οΈ

So today I started slow and steady to let myself ease into a flow and then I had a little play with testing my pace and seeing how it felt. There was absolutely no pressure, the run was about completing 2k! I can do that! 😁 There was no guide this time, so I had to adjust to that. πŸ€” I do like a guided run! 😍

It was really good to get a feel for what is comfortable for me now that I’m a Post Grad as well as being able to experience making my own adjustments and speed up a bit for the shorter distance.

Result 2.02k in 15:43! If I’m honest I don’t even know if that’s good or bad, it’s just me! I went out and I ran. And I had FUN!! πŸ˜‰

Good run - Check βœ…!!

Enjoy everyone!! ❀️

Sounds like a cracking time . I like setting myself little goals and completing them. Puts a big smile on the area I would normally be stuffing pizza into :o).

Thanks oldfellow! I had the plan built around running my best 5k race. Nice touch on the App! There are some 5k runs in the plan, as well as benchmarking, speed runs and some workouts. So I think it has the right balance and variety for me to be ready for the next step after that. ❀️

Thank you Sadie! I think it’s good to remember that it’s so brilliant just being able to run! There’s absolutely nothing technical about having fun! Just get out there and do it! What do we have to lose? πŸ˜‚β€οΈ

Agreed Jojo! The benefits are a great plus! ❀️

Well Fabulous.

I recon that’s not far off 35 minutes for five k

Which by the way I think is great pace!!

That’s my Radiotherapy Physics

calculator head on by the way.

Distance = speed times time.

Time = distance divided by speed.

Speed = distance divided by time.

We always have someone else check any calculations we do so there’s a little test if you or someone else wants one.

I only have until the end of December to get under 25 minutes for 5k

Seems unlikely at the moment but I’m having fun trying.

Oooh that’s not too bad at all then!!! I like Radiotherapy Physics! 😁

5k in 25mins would be fabulous and as you’re having fun trying, I can see that being highly likely too! Enjoy!! 😁😁❀️

Will certainly keep trying to Deb and if I find myself back in the wilderness, I know I only need to take some time to ask myself β€œWhy do I want to run ?” again and the answer will be loyally there waiting for me. 😁❀️

Good plan! Glad you enjoyed it, and it sounds like you'll have whale of a time preparing for your 5k run πŸ˜€

I'm ok - Mixed responses to the week 2 runs - first one really good, second one (yesterday) not so good. I'll just have to keep persevering I guess.
