This week I started Mondays run with a difference, I have run 5k twice a week since graduating in May/June and running an interval on the 3rd run every week since, cant remember exactly now it seems so long ago. Anyhow decided I should step up my distance so decided on a slower but longer run. Went out on my normal route and thought I will add an additional lap to my run. So was cruising very nicely along (in my mind I was cruising very nicely) did the extra lap, I wasn't feeling any ill effects then completed my run to find I had covered 6.5k. I hadn't marked out the extra lap as in distance wise, so got to the end of the run feeling really pleased with myself and also not as tired as I thought I might have been. Ran intervals on Wednesday as usual and my run this morning was pretty good, no PB but not far off of it. I have never thought of myself as a runner, more like a plodder who goes out and gets all hot and sweaty and not looking comfortable running, until maybe this week when I was running along thinking to myself "yep I can do this running lark". If someone had said that to me when I first ran week 1 run 1 I think I would have keeled over with laughter. 10k doesn't seem so far away now and that will be a shock if I cover that. Stay healthy and keep on running. Thanks for reading.
