Week 7 went better than expected, considering the dose of man flu ! In fact, each of the 25 minute runs was better than the one before It was the first week when I didnt run to plan. All previous weeks I've run monday wednesday friday at 6am. Well this time, I already knew on thursday evening that the man flu was toooo bad to run. So I postponed run 3 until Saturday morning. I left the house at 9am on saturday, so this was my first run in the daylight. I guess it was a combination of the time of day and the fact that it was a saturday, but quite a few other people along my river side route, half of them running too.
I'm guessing it was because I was running in daylight, but this time when Laura said 1 minute to go, I had already reached where Laura said stop running on run 2
So this morning was monday run 1 week 8. It went well, it didnt feel like a bad pace, but... I only ran the same distance in 28 minutes this morning that I had run in 25 minutes on saturday. That's the difference running in the dark I guess. I'm not bothered by it. Just pleased to have got this far
So, a rest tomorrow, and another 28 minute run on wednesday. Maybe try push a bit more then
Happy running everyone
