Good advice!!

Thanks for all your wise words the other day when I was feeling bit fed up with myself! Just been out for a run this morning. Slightly different route, took it easy, allowed myself a few little walks up the hill and didn't check sports tracker until I was nearly back to my car. Could hardly believe it! Just over 5k in 36mins!!! Very pleased with myself!

I'm really happy for you PL.

You have confirmed my suspicion that looking at a sports tracker or watch during a run actually makes it speed up. Meaning that the 5k run takes longer.

Isn't it lovely when you have a nice relaxed run, don't think too much about times and then find you've achieved a PB?


Well done, that's an impressive time!


And so you should ;) Well done :)
