Today I went out for my second, post grad 'outdoor run', and I think I may have missed out on a PB through my lack of effective and accurate route planning What I mean is, I still haven't managed to plan a 5k / 3.1 mile route! I know I could just extend my run (which I may do next time if I'm just short again) but I'd still like to have a route of 5k planed out.
Today's run was 2.98 miles (almost there!) which I covered in 28.40. I'm pleased with that time as I'm currently just trying to workout a route of 5k to consolidate my 5k distance and then look to try and accomplish my long term goal of running 5k in 30 minutes.
Looking at my time above, I think I would have achieved my goal if my route had been slightly longer and even if I didn't achieve the 5k in 30 minutes then I'm sure my run would have resulted in a PB as my graduation run 5k time is 34.37.
Never mind, taking the positives out of my run today, I got out and ran, it felt great being outdoors, all helps with my fitness, and, according to my Garmin / Garmin Connect, my Average Vertical Oscillation is above average at 7.9 cm
Happy running people
