Week 7 - Run 1 - It's great running in the woods

Well that's Week 7 off to a flying start! I went to the woods again, but was having a bit of trouble getting the GPS watch thing to find its Mothership, so I carried on right to the top of the hill to an opening in the trees so it could locate its satellites, this meant a 10 min warm up walk but I didn't see that as a problem. I should have just said 'Sod it' and did the run but it made for an interesting alternate route.

I did of course make the compulsory wrong turn but it didn't involve any mountaineering this time so that was ok! :)

I covered 3.72k in the 25 mins which I am more than happy with especially on a lumpy course :) So If I can keep that sort of pace for the full 30mins I shouldn't be too far off the 5k. Easier said than done though I am sure.

I hope my legs recover quicker this time!

Taking wrong turns makes it more interesting. Seems you are doing great times and distance.

Not far to go now, enjoy the rest of the week.
