That was the challenge today. A very wet, miserable day. Me shorts and t-shirt, Garmin, Trail shoes and music.
So I went and I conquered. I have managed to get under 30 mins for 5K again. 5.01 in 29:26 to be precise. I know it's not about the speed but coming back from injury when you know you've been quicker it is really frustrating and I won't accept I can't get back to where I was and better. I also got a new VO2 Max of 41 which is heading in the right direction.
How did I celebrate? Well with a 5 mile dog walk of course. As you can see Rico was a bit bedraggled after the walk.
Other changes of note in the GF household: Mrs GF is doing her own run walk thing and has been secretly since March. A friend of mine shopped her to me. My 18 year old daughter is following a plan 26 miles in 26 weeks! Sounds tough to me. Her current time is 2.75 miles in 31 mins so has some way to go and it must be hard to acknowledge her Dad is quicker (at the moment) but I am delighted she is taking up running.
It's brilliant that we will all be fitter tomorrow than we are today.
Feeling fantastic now. And have a day off tomorrow as well.
Happy Running all
