I was a little concerned as I didn't have Laura (I've left her as I think she was seeing lots of other people behind my back, both men & women too !) with me this morning for the first time, just had my music and Runkeeper for company.
I stuck a countdown timer on my phone and set it so I could run for 33 minutes. I had read somewhere that you shouldn't up the time by more than 10% which I hope is right !!
I ran 5k in 32.39 - I have no idea if that's slow, ridiculously slow or tortoise pace but I am now managing the distance with ease.
I have no great pace but a lot of durability.
One thing that was disappointing was that I said good morning to two pairs of lady runners who were running in the opposite direction about two minutes apart.
They saw me, wouldn't move out of the way at all whilst taking up all of the pavement and when I said 'good morning' wouldn't even make eye contact or acknowledge I was there. No headphones, no excuses, just plain rude.
I had to move out of their way as THEY were coming through. Very disappointed with that.
Bar the unpleasant ones, it was a great run on a great morning.
Right then, lunch then the golf course awaits.
Ps I am gutted about the rugby !
