Wow, that was a blast! I know I'm a million miles from the performance of even a basic runner, but I feel like superman! Having completed my first 5K on Monday for run 1 of week 9, I had it in mind that perhaps I could do it again.
At the start of my run, just a couple of minutes in, I found myself having to queue to get through a kissing gate into the park and thought "that'll impact the pace of my first K" (get me, eh?). When I looked at my wrist and saw my Garmin flash 6:14 for my first Km, I was shocked! My previous fastest Km was 6:52.
I thought uh-uh, thats too fast a pace, I'm going to pay for that! It was strange, because it didn't feel like a particularly faster pace, it was just what felt a natural rhythm.
I kept going, did the 5K (and a few extra metres to make it a longest run) and:
Fastest 5K (33:59 compared to 35:21)
Fastest K (6:14 compared with 6:52)
Longest run (5.04Km compared with 5.01)
Friday is my graduation run - wish me luck! I'm also going to do my first Parkrun a week on Saturday.

Happy days! I could never have imagined just how much I'm loving this!
