unmotivated to remotivated - Thanks!

This morning I had a small whinge about feeling unmotivated, not getting any faster and not even getting close to my graduate 5k time of 32:35.

Iannoda, fitfor60 and Wheatls all gave me good sound advice and encouragement and i dragged my unwilling self out the door for my lunch run.

This was supposed to be my 30min run and I trotted off on a new route around the park. About halfway round i realised I was doing ok and as my 2nd km is always the hardest for me and the slowest I figured I could be in for a decent run. Helped along by an upbeat podcast of 90's music and miraculously no knee twinges I upped the pace and did my fastest 5k in 31:40.

So thanks you guys, I am so chuffed and happy to see some improvement that i think i have found some motivation again!
