I have spent the last 6 months only ever blogging about my miserable aches and pains. Not anymore folks, I am back with a boom, and no more sulking!
I have at last managed to get my aches and pains under control ('Run & Roll' works for me), and am up to running twice a week again. Three times next week.
That all said, in the past 3 weeks I have managed to run 10K for the first time. (I just threw caution to the wind and went for it). Then today I have just been out for a nice flat 5K around Emberton Park. Two highlights today;
1) I overtook a couple of cyclists. Really, I did. They passed me earlier on, as you would expect, then I found that I was as good as pacing with them. (How slow can you ride a bike?). Within a mile I was right up behind them, then past. They soon passed me again, probably too ashamed!
2) Then to put the icing on the cake, a new 5K PB of 24:49 (7 second improvement). So pleased with that. I broke 25 mins about 8 months ago, and have got no nearer than 40 seconds since. I was starting to wonder if Endomondo was lying to me. But nope, today I really did it. So pleased with that.
I'm back up and running again folks, bring on the summer
