Up with the sparrows this morning-I have not ever properly timed 5k. After reading all the various posts thought I ought to give it a go. Wanted to go early as i dont do well in the heat.Set out from home in sun and drove to my fav flat route by the coast-where it was foggy and a bit drizzly-only five miles away from home!
Anyway did the run-and it was by far the easiest yet-I guess the speed, stepping stones and stamina podcasts are paying off. My speed was a steady 7.5k-so I was never in with a chance of 30 mins. But I came in at 39 mins. Which felt ok -clearly I can aim to bring this down-but the speed felt very doable and sustainable.
My plan is to carry on with speed and stamina and then on my Sunday run extend by 10% each week. With the aim of 10k by end of July. This is there and back on the coast route and would feel a very satisfactory outcome. Couldn't see it happening before but it really does feel acheivable now.
Mojo returned with no real effort on my part-happy running everyone.xxx
