Sooooo excited!!!! Went out for my second (& probably final) run of my hols here in Belgium & decided to do a 5k.
Not sure what happened, maybe Belgian waffles are the ultimate secret running fuel, maybe it's due to sleeping brilliantly here (few Belgian beers help;)), but I was able to push it more than usual. My new Garmin, R2D2 is certainly helping things along. I was able to keep a closed eye on distance & pace & therefore give myself a nudge now & then to maintain progress. It also certainly helped to have some nice flat Belgian countryside to run through, so I really felt I could floor it without tiring myself out overly. Although Runkeeper thinks I did my highest elevation climb in a run, so a little confused by that!! Just as well I have my Garmin now to keep me right.
So my average for 5k is 37/37.5, I'll never be a speed demon. My PB which I haven't hit in some time till now was 36/36.5... I just did it in 34 mins, woo hoo!!!!!!!! The waffle eating & beer quaffing can resume guilt-free. I'm going to be doing little victory shimmies round our holiday let & driving my family mad for a bit too happy running everyone xxx
