I ran my 3rd 5km in 4 days today, today was a Park Run, 2 days ago a run in a Gothenburg forest and the day before on the treadmill. So I have had some variety in my runs!
My official Park Run time was 25'41" which was slightly slower than last weeks 25'24" but still good considering the heat and the fact that I only got home late last night from Gothenburg. The attached photo is me crossing the finishing line, not the most flattering photos that has ever been taken of me, but I thought I'd share anyway.
I have decided that I am going to ditch my Nike+ app because the last two Park Runs have shown it to be inaccurate. On both occasions it timed my 5km to be a minute faster because it called 5km when I was actually at about 4.75km. I like my stats to be accurate so this has annoyed me a bit. I have decided that I'll buy myself a Garmin Forerunner 610 and also a proper running shoes, my gym shoes are getting a bit tatty.
Even though the time isn't accurate here is a link to my run per Nike+
I won't be running for a month because the Islamic month of Ramadan begins this week and Muslims who observe this month do not eat or drink from sunrise to sunset, so I don't think it will be wise to run. For those who want to know what Ramadan is about I have posted a link to an article I found.
I would like to thank everyone for the kinds words they have said and I will post a blog in the coming days about how I went from a 94kg couch potato in October to a 70kg avid runner today!
