I have not posted for some time but I read the postings of others everyday as I receive a daily summary to my email account. I have been keeping up the running out three times a week, occasional lapses when I might only run a couple of times but mostly three times running about 6.5 Km each time. I have various courses I have worked out running on the local roads in the area where I live. Having different routes helps keep the runs fresh each time. My 5 Km time has always stayed around the 31m 20s to 32m even on days when I tried to beat it. Today I set off and just ran with no intention of trying to beat my PB time of 31m 17s for 5 K however when I was overtaken by a young lady at around the 4K mark this spurred me on a bit as she disappeared into the distance with each stride. I looked at my Garmin and thought I am doing pretty well today so I just pressed on at the pace I was doing. Got home and uploaded my run to Garmin connect and looked at the 1 K splits and eureka I have a new PB of 30 m 40 s for 5 Km not bad going and an early birthday present as I will be 64 in a couple of weeks’ time.
