One run to go, and just smashed w9r2!!

So I couldn't sleep last night because of the heat, so when it got to 5.15 I thought I might as well get up - I figured it's only going to get hotter, right? Lovely morning, cool breeze and I was out before 5.45. I really want to do a 30 min 5k or better before I graduate and my best average pace has been around 6:30, so I tried to go a little faster, with a very helpful soundtrack. I made sure I had loads of water before I left and wore as little as decently possible!

The run felt good, it started to feel a bit hot out of the shade, especially on the upward inclines, but I slowed down and kept at it. Was so so pleased to see that I had averaged a pace of 6:05 by the end and had done 5.2k in 31.51 mins! Praying for a cool cambridge race for life now on 19 July. If all goes to plan I should graduate (can't believe I have stuck with this!!) On Saturday!!

Go Go Go all my fellow nearly- graduates, especially you Dawn and Pam, so close now we can almost taste it!!!! 🏃🏃🏃🏃🏃🏃🏃🏃🏃🏃
