Sounds like a good run!

Speed is not terribly important, but if you do want to work on increasing it, then a good way is to use one run a week for intervals, or fartlek runs - it's amazing what pushing your heart rate up for short periods will do for both speed and stamina. But take it gently - many small increments are always better than one big one.

Keep it up!

Was really funny running without Laura......didn't feel like I had anything to achieve ....so decided to try and up my pace and get to 5k ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ x

Will try being Laura less thurs. This run keeper thing on my phone says when you pass each 5 mins I think. Do you have a 5k planned Dawn? X
