After my graduation run of 5.6km on Thursday I decided that 7km would be a reasonable target for my first post grad run and completed it this Saturday morning.
When I started my healthier lifestyle at the beginning of the year I walked a lot more. My longest walk was 7km in 66 minutes (I was using Nike+ Running app even then :-)) and I decided that it would be nice if my first post grad run would be the same route.
My aim was for an average 6min km and started off at what I thought was this pace, however I got it wrong, probably because I have been running a lot faster recently, and the first km was 6'23". I then sped up for most of the run and pushed myself in the last km and ran it in 5'34". I don't feel tired after the run and know that I could increase the pace next time. Here is a link to my run:
I am off to Helsinki for work on Tuesday and have booked a hotel near the harbour so I hope to go for a few runs along the harbour next week. If I do then I will write a blog.
