Consolidation Run 24 πŸƒβ€β™‚οΈ

B210K - W3R1

3.5K 🎯

Started Week 3 of Ju-Ju-β€˜s Magic 10K plan today which felt a bit odd being a Wednesday and all πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ

After my 6K for W2R3 on Monday I was feeling a bit tired and my shins were not at all happy with me πŸ˜– So yesterday I forced myself to rest properly, hydrated a lot, had a nice hot bath in the evening and went to bed fairly early.

Today I really wanted to apply the advice received from the more experienced runners and run without any self imposed pressure.

No specific BPM playlist, no PB goals and no forced pace/speed. I just opted for a funky house DJ set that I like and off I went πŸƒβ€β™‚οΈ Leaving competitive me at home!

I did want to try and run this shorter run at a pace I thought would be suitable for the 5K plus runs and to focus on my posture and breathing.

So, I’m surprised and happy with these stats as I thought/felt like I was running much slower than I normally do when I think I am pushing myself ... maybe I don’t need to be pushing myself so hard? πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ I felt calm and in full control πŸ’ͺ

1K - 5:19

2.5K - 13:40

3K - 16:41

3.5K - 19:35

If this run was a 5K it should/would be a sub 30 minutes - I think πŸ€” with the splits all being sub 6 minutes πŸ‘

Cool, calm and collected run πŸƒβ€β™‚οΈπŸ˜Ž

Happy running all! πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™‚οΈ
