Went back out with Jog Scotland tonight, more circuits on grass but what a difference from my first time.
We had two coaches with us and there were 8 runners, good warm up exercises first and then we were off.
We were going to be running 5 times for 4 minutes with recovery periods of 2 minutes, I can do that!!! The first 4 minutes would set our goal distance to aim for each time. Well I did the complete loop of the playing fields and some, about 750m the first time. I was about 10m short of reaching a gardeners hut so it was something to aim for the next time. Yep I got to the hut the 2nd time, then the 3rd, 4th and 5th time.
GoodRunGuide calculated overall distance 4.15K in 20 minutes, if that is anything like being right that's a sub 30 minutes for 5K.
All I have to do now is be able to keep that pace up without any 2 minute recovery breaks. For long enough I've said time is not that important to me, I still say that, but hey what a buzz I got tonight, not only managing respectable distances but kept the pace going too, faster than I've ever run, and out of the 6 runners we now had as two left before we finished I was second. Life in the OldGirl yet it seems Happy running everyone.
