My run took a turn for the better - has this happened to you

Well I ran , this morning, set my mind a course for a 10 k. I have been getter a bit slower recently so I had in my mind to not slow down anymore

First k was average, second k good. Sub 5 min pace. Were the satellites playing up.,,, 3 k still good. So i thought keep the pace up and just do 5k

Ooo. pb today. 25. min 5k. Good for me!!

Should I have carried on- mmm legs were ok. But oh the feeling when map my run states a run in the top 10 %. Nice little flag to celebrate.

Nice long run in the week to make up .

Not sure why it was so much faster- just hope to pass it on.
