I returned from Copenhagen last night and wanted to complete week 8 ASAP, so I got up early this morning to go for a run. I found this run a bit tougher and I'm blaming the good food that I've been eating over the past 3 days! Below are km splits:
1km - 5'07"
2km - 5'24"
3km - 5'40"
4km - 5'41"
5km - 5'23"
I ran 5.25km in w8r2 and knew it would be difficult to beat this so I didn't push myself too much. After the first 2km I was feeling tired so I slowed down a bit. When I reached 4km I knew I had to up the pace to reach 5km, I managed to do it but was tired by the end of the 28 minutes. In all I managed to run 5.13km.
I track my runs with the Nike+ running app and I am hoping the link below will share my run with you all. Please let me know if it works. As long as the body allows me I will begin week 9 tomorrow!
