I was sat in my house at 9:30pm in my running gear, waiting for my husband to come home from his football session so I could go out for a run. The kids were long since bedded and I was dying to get out for week 5 run 3 - the dreaded 20 mins continuous run. I heard the car pull up outside so I grabbed the Garmin (was interested in my pace this time) and left.
It was a lovely night although the wind had picked up a little. I decided to run out on a country road and back in on the cycle path. 5 minute warm up walk done, "3-2-1, go" said Laura and off I went. 20 mins of non-stop running! I did it! And it was easier than I expected. Indeed, I could have gone further. I had refrained from looking at the Garmin apart from to check my pace twice - both times it was at 10:10mins per mile, so I was surprised, and delighted, to see that my 2nd mile had been 9:54mins. Glad to see my pace has only dropped a little from my pre-pregnancy half marathon pace.
What a buzz! Wk 5 run 3 - 2.89 miles
