Something's definitely changed. I went out to do a 5K run today, feeling confident after my 6K achievement on Thurs. I started way too fast, but managed to keep going, somehow my breathing was keeping up and my legs just wanted to run. I felt so good all the way through, a big contrast to a few weeks ago when the struggle of it was sucking away any enjoyment I might have been getting. I even relished the cold rain that started halfway through. This meant the Olympic park was blissfully deserted and it also saved me from overheating. My time was 34:08, 4 mins faster than Thursday. Every lap was below 7mins/km, really big difference to where I was at before. I felt great at the end and could have kept on going. Bring on the next run!
