Third run of the week tonight - and my very first one without Laura to guide me round. Up to going out, I couldn't decide whether to give the Speed podcast another blast, or just get out and run a set route. Given that it's been very warm here today, and I'm hard pushed to find a flat route to sprint on, I decided against the Speed option and instead loaded Justin Timberlake onto my phone and headed out.
I ran a circuit that took 34 minutes, average pace 9.30 minute/ mile...which seems to be my default speed, regardless of whether I do a 30, 35 or 40 minute run. Neither do I find the shorter runs particularly easier than the longer ones.
I'm working towards a 10k race in a month's time but feel like I'm stuck on Groundhog day, getting nowhere fast.
