Since I returned to running after a layoff due to illness I have to say that I haven't really been enjoying it. I seem to have lost a lot of speed and cannot seem to find anything in my legs to pick up the pace while out running. Previous pace was around 5-5:15 per km, now its around 6:15-6:30.
Today, I decided to shake things up a bit. Normally I do the 3 runs per week (2 x 5k and 1 longer weekend run). I downloaded week 1 and planned to run 2k within the 8x60sec slots (I think thats an average of 15kph).
I didnt manage it (1.94km) but for the first time in quite some time, I really enjoyed my run.
I think I may substitute a 5k for this option once per week. I may even move to week 2 if I ever break that 2k
Happy running folks
