I ran two intervals of 15 minutes with 2 minutes between this evening. I ran fast enough for the first half minute that notpheidippides wasn't too far ahead to disappear round the corner as quickly as usual. It didn't last long though! I was panting within 2 minutes and running at my normal speed again whilst np zoomed round the park and did close on 5 k in the 30 minutes running...well done him at 72 years old Our neighbour, a much younger runner, when we returned said that of course np had the legs for running even at his advanced age. I felt better about my slow pace then. My legs MOST DEFINITELY are not runners' legs.
I feel as though I'm back to where I was before I went into hospital so I'll definitely be going for my graduation run on Wednesday. We're going to a different park where the GPS signal is good just so that I can see how far I can run in 30 minutes. I'm very much hoping it will be 3k.
