Wasn't around to post yesterday as had my Nans funeral, but before that part of the day I had a fantastic run yesterday morning.
Out the door at 5:30am, glorious sunshine with a lovely crisp chill in the air. Starting my 2nd week of B210K.
Starting off on my usual route I ran at a nice easy pace, felt really comfortable and was just really enjoying the run. Just after the first km mark I decided to change from my usual route and head down another street which makes a triangle with my normal route - adding a "spike" to it. I did the same again a bit further round, "spiking" off to do lap of the triangle that I started C25K on.
I really liked the "new" route, the extra bits make a lap a bit over 2km instead of just under 1.5km. So I can cover more distance in the same locality with less worry about the monotony of doing laps or ending up miles from home.
All told, in the 3x 15 minute runs and 1 minute walks I covered 6.32km and felt I could have easily carried on.
I feel quite confident that I can get up to 10km in time for the 10K event I have my eye on in June. I don't think the pace will be great, I reckon between 1hr 15 and 1hr 20, but I think I'll be able to go the distance.
It was a brilliant run, my favourite so far, and I felt fantastic afterwards. Obviously the other events in the day curtailed things but it was good start to a sad day.
