My HM programme had me running 5km today. The only problem I have is that I am meeting some old friends in London this evening for dinner. I have spent the last week trying to slot this run into my 4 run a week timetable without running on 3 consecutive days and with out missing Saturday's Parkrun. It was like I was playing Tetris. Finally it dawned on me...run at dawn!
So I was up at 5am and out of the door not soon after. I had to run at a steady pace and average 5:58 per km. I ran around my local streets and there were a lot of people putting out their rubbish for the bin men. Now I know today is collection day but you don't have to put the rubbish out at 5:30am! I said hello to whoever looked in my direction and got a few nods from the early commuters. I set off when it was still very dark and now most of the gloom has gone.
I need to shower now and head off to work. I will sign off my saying becoming a runner has made me to some strange things and running at this time is definitely one of them!
Here is a link to the run:
