Don't like to seem like I'm bragging (and I can't, because compared to many others I have little to brag about) but I'm buzzing a bit and had to share it.
Parkrun results in now (for some reason they were very late today) and they confirm that my run today was a good one. Over the last few weeks each PR has been about 30 seconds faster than the week before. I've been yearning for that sub-30 minute 5k for a while, and having scraped under it last week, today was timed at 29:26. I can't believe that I'm chasing down the 29 minute mark now - would have been amazed a few weeks ago to think that I might have done this. It even opens the prospect of really going for a 60 min 10k in the coming couple of months!
I think this may have been helped by taking a bit more care about diet and nutrition this week, and making sure my body is properly fed and fuelled.
If I can do this, I'm sure anyone can - so take heart out there and believe!
