I've just come back from my first run of Week 9! Amazing how much progress we can make in 9 weeks huh?
I've never used a GPS tracker with the app before as the other runs weren't the final goal of the programme, but with this run being 30 minutes, I wanted to see how far I was actually going. I used the app "MapMyRun", and when I'd finished, was a little disappointed to see I'd done 4k. But I think the app messed up and took a while to pick up my location, as it's registered my start point 0.4 miles after where I started from according to the route it's mapped out for me. So I'm hoping it messed the distance travelled up too, and assuming it has, I've ran around 4.6k!
So any tips to help ensure I reach the 5k I've been promised? Though I felt I had a good workout and was sweaty, I'm glad I can say there was more to give, so I think I will try and up my speed in the last 5-10 minutes. I really want to reach 5k by Friday
