Just lately I've been trying to increase my distance so this last week I've been doing around 7ks every other day. I've also taken to running off road, on footpaths and in woodland. My pace has been quickening, which I've realised but can't make myself run any slower, it's quite slow anyway! (about 7 mins / km).
Because I'm speeding up, I find that I keep having to take walking breaks, I've told myself it's because I'm on trails and they are harder to run than roads.
Today I thought I'd let myself off, and just run 5k on the roads.
I had to walk for AGES! I got really annoyed with myself I feel like I'm going backwards after graduating!
I know you have bad runs once in a while but this one took the biscuit, especially when the gorgeous looking perfectly preened blond ran past in her full make up and not a bead of sweat showing, with a rather pitying smile, TWICE!
