I read on here yesterday (can't find the post) about running without music etc. I thought that was mad and I wouldn't be able to run without the music to keep me going. How wrong i was! I ran my fastest 5 k yesterday in 31 mins 41 secs but was totally running on entry to hit exactly 5k. Knew I needed to run today as will be busy early next week so decided maybe I'd just have a slow run out and maybe do 2.5k. BUT just had my best run EVER! I had no music on and put run keeper on silent. I took a different route at Newmillerdam and ran up into the woods and up and down the hilly paths instead of on the flat paths. It was amazing and felt so energised. Even had enough left to do an extra 0.5 k. Managed 5.5k in 38 mins 42seconds. I knew I'd had a good work out and was defo in the zone! Thank you to those who suggested the no music approach! It so helped me!
