Week 8 run 3 of Active 5k to 10k is a 60 min run. i was determined to get out on Easter Saturday but missed my usual early morn start & then got caught up in my family's weekend plan. Anyway, I resolved to abstain from any indulgence until I'd done my run so, as soon as it got dark, I headed out for my 1st ever night run! It was a lovely evening for it.
The 1st 20 mins was a bit tough and then I hit a high, breathing normally through nose, not gasping and feeling great?! Excellent! Only when it got to 50 mins did I start clock watching.
Trying a different route & seeing places on foot rather than through the car window is also uplifting.
Frigging Garmin has been on the blink for a while, stops & starts when it pleases which is a bit distracting & upsetting. Teach me not to go cheap & buy refurbished on eBay! Now I'll need to buy again!
Pace still slow, only 4.7 miles, short legs long body, one paced jog to meet the time rather than distance. Will need to build on this.
Week 9 & completion awaits!
