I did a short 3.5k run today, an exact repeat of my Graduation run of early December. But this time I used Ju's mantra - "Push that body, punish that body!" and every time, my body replied "Stop picking on me! Find another body to push and punish!" But it seemed to work! My rate before had been 6.5 minutes/km, and today was 6.18. So an improvement, possibly also due to my new streamlined jogging trousers, courtesy of Messrs. Asda.
