Two personal bests: 4:58 minutes for 1 km, and 8:41 for 1 mile. That's the highlights that Miss Garmin shows me from my tempo run yesterday. The total run was 5km in 28:40.
I'm very pleased with the sub-5-min for a km. That feels like quite a milestone for me. But I had to smile when the Garmin Connect dashboard suggested updating my PB for one mile at 8:41. The previous PB for one mile was the exact same time, and it was made when I set my PB for 5 km back in June (at 27:50 nearly a minute faster than yesterday).
So all the training over the last three months has resulted in me being able to run 1 mile just as fast as I could three months ago, and 5 km only a minute slower than I could 3 months ago. That doesn't sound like a lot of progress to me, but I know I'm stronger and fitter, so I choose to be pleased.
And the 4:58 for a km - yay, that one goes into the dashboard as something to be proud of
