It's only taken 5 months, a serious amount of interval training on the treadmill - variety of different sessions (see my recent "heart rate" posts) - , the odd outdoor 8k (45 min) a single outdoors 10k (55 mins - woo hoo!) and then a whole load more of interval sessions on the treadmill, but I've finally broken the 24 minute barrier!
I did this yesterday lunchtime around Port Sunlight village here on the Wirral - it's a 2-lap course, virtually no cars to dodge and I decided that the weather was simply too good an opportunity to miss to try for a a PB. 13°C on December 2nd? Have it!
And I am knackered today, no stiffness, but physically tired. Anyway, onwards! Sub 23? I'm coming after you buddy!
