Well, I skipped my breakfast today because I woke up late after a late night yesterday. Then I managed to have a Cheese sandwich around 2pm with a cuppa and was feeling tired. Weather was not all that promising and I thought that I wouldn't go for a run today, and had a sleep for 2 hours, call it an afternoon nap! When I got up I was fresh and good but the weather was not looking good. I knew I had to go for that run or else I would blame myself for giving myself false excuses.
So I got into my running gear and went out! Today I changed my technique of running a bit. What I used to do was to run in short and long strides as a mixture along the way. Today since I have not had a good lunch I thought it would be better not to get too tired and stop before completing the 5K, so I was running in short quick strides. I ran like that all the way with no changes. I felt good, not too tired and in fact I was finding it easier. So today I ran the 5K in 28 minutes and 40 seconds and this is my Personal Best! Hurray!!!!
Few months back, never in my dreams I imagined that I would run 5K in this timing, I have come a long way and I am well proud of myself!
I do thank you all good runners for giving such encouragement to each of us, we are a great bunch here!!
