I just can't believe how kind the weather has been – another beautiful morning for a run. Makes up for the sweltering heat of June and July when I was getting into C25K.
A 5k completed my week 6. I watched the 'Get fit in 6 minutes' video on YouTube and I'm about half way through 'Born to Run' by Christopher McDougall, so went out in an upbeat mindset. As an experiment, I had downloaded a 180 bpm running playlist from Spotify. Oh my days, what a difference it made! I beat the 30 minute mark on a 5k for my first time without setting it as a goal. My intention was to run slow and steady.
I've also learnt how to use my Garmin, so recorded my run stats. There were a few squirrels dashing around and I met a couple of dogwalkers but otherwise my route was blissfully quiet. Another excellent fun run! Week 7 starts on Thursday and I'll do the 4k first, leaving the 9k for the weekend. Happy running!
