I've been in Gothenburg this week and had planned to go run in a forest just outside of the city. I was going to go yesterday but the weather was horrible. When I finished work today the weather wasn't great, it was raining but it isn't cold, so I listened to oldgirls advice and went anyway.
It was the most enjoyable run I've done so far, post graduation I've motivated myself by either running faster or longer, but this run was so enjoyable I settled for 5km and kept at a comfortable pace of about 6 mins a km.
There were a lot more inclines than I'm used to so that was a bit tough, but as I said before the sights were great so that more than offset it. I didn't want to get lost so I downloaded an offline map of Gothenburg and had that app open while I was running, if it wasn't for the app I'm sure I'd still be in the forest trying to figure out which way was out!
The route I took went around a lake in the forest, I noticed one guy dive in for a swim, with only swimming trunks on, he must be mad!
Here are my splits:
1km - 6'01"
2km - 6'17"
3km - 5'52"
4km - 5'34"
5km - 5'59"
and here is a link to the route I took:
Anyway now for a shower and some dinner!
