I made a 33 minute playlist last night that included a countdown of songs at the end “6 degrees of separation”, “5 colours in her hair” etc. I decided to go right off my usual round the houses route and went down to the sea. Ran along the promenade, across the wet sand for about 1/2km (that was quite tiring) and along the promenade again. 33 minutes seemed a very long time – maybe because I wasn’t on the usual route and didn’t know where I would finish.
My plan is to increase the time of my run until I get to 5km. 33 minutes this week, 36 minutes next week and hopefully 40 minutes will take me over the 5km mark. I didn’t take my GPS watch with me today as it wasn’t charged up so I don’t know how far I went today. Do you think that plan is sensible?
