so running along last night, getting back into my stride I drop down onto the tow path before I loose the light.
10 mins in and the all too familiar uugghhh can't do this, what was I thinking of, might as well stop pack up and go home.....
NO that's not what Runners do Matthew. You're a runner so you had better run, now pull you socks up (they're very short) and RUN
Now for once I actually listened to my own words, head down grit through it and the next thing you know mmmmmmmmm smooth slick tarmac path - there you are - my best sections to just loose myself and feel the freedom of the run.
beeeeeep "4km in 26:30" .... now in my world & with my legs that was fast - could I - could I do it - come on kid dig deep and just run it.
so yes - I've run it a hundred times or more, but I have NEVER run 5k in under 33 mins before - but I did last night. My very first personal best.
What a feeling.
Happy Running all
