Just completed run 2 of week 9 and looks like I have done 5k (3.125 miles) in 30 mins I was managing between 2.7 and 2.8 miles in week 8 and even did 3 miles one day in 31 mins as I was feeling good and wanted to push it a bit (spare of the moment decision at end of the 28 mins). First run of week 9 I did 2.9 miles in 30 mins and was expecting the same today. However due to the wind on Monday my usual route had a fallen tree so I had to back track and re-route. Didn't think anything of it at the time but when I got home I looked at my GPS watch and saw I had done an extra minute (31 in total) and clocked up 3.32 miles! A quick bit of maths and that equals 3.2 miles in 30 minutes!!!
Shocked? Just a little but so very pleased too, can't wait for my final run so I can graduate and then onto the bridge to 10K.
