A run in the sun...
what fab weather we are having, Hope everyone is out enjoying the sun
Went out for my run this morning and was undecided about what to do, a 5k as quick as I could or an extra 5 minutes running (40 mins )
But as I set off, I knew straight away, my legs were going to be difficult, they just did not want to do as they were told, I said go faster they lurched and stumbled about and went slower. So a 40 minute run it was.
Which turns out to be how long it took me to run my 5k today, My worst time so far, but I'm not too worried it was warm and I am full of junk food and alcohol from the last (erm, 3 ? nights ? ok.... ok..... 4 nights of drinking and bbq's ) I know its a terrible way to treat my poor body then expect it to run....
So I must try and be good as of next week eat healthy, limit my alcohol to one night a week, and really focus on my goal of doing the 'one big weekend' run in under 30 minutes in August, (yikes that's less than a month away now)
So my stats were:
40 min 18 seconds
average pace 8:01
Time to focus Think I will push up the time, for the next couple of weeks in the hope that will make the 5k easier and therefore faster.
