Week 8 run 3 and a sub 35 5k

A lovely crisp clear evening, wind has died down a bit and a big bright full moon.

I set off for week 8 run 3 feeling pretty good, having changed my route slightly to miss out the uphill section I usually start with. It all was going well until after about 200 metres I realised I had already forgotten to go right at the traffic lights instead of straight over. No problem, a wee detour through the council estate put me back on track.

A few other runners out tonight, and for once I actually felt like I was one of them.

I set up Endomondo to give me updates every 5 minutes which helped to spur me on, so I kept going past the required 28 minutes and managed to do my second ever 5k in 34:56.

Well chuffed with that, bring on week 9 and graduation!
