On Wednesday and I ran additional 3 minutes to get a sneaky 28 minute run in prior to WK8.
It was the first run where I monitored the distance and I managed 4.43km
Today I got a bit ahead of myself and thought if I run a bit quicker and manage another 28 minute run today I might get to 5K ??
Well it didn't go quite to plan. I must have run at a bit of a quicker pace as I was totally knackered after 25 minutes and stopped running and did the 5 minute warm down walk etc.
But I did manage 4.42km
So that's nearly the same distance (bar 10m) but 3 minutes quicker.
I'm not sure if I'm happy or sad. sad that I didn't make it to 5K or happy that I ran the same distance as Wednesday but 3 minutes quicker
Overall I'm happy to know that I can run a bit quicker and in time the fitness will get better and allow me to run a bit quicker for longer.
2 days off now before W8 starts
Here is a question for anyone. I have followed the C25K program now for 7weeks and I always run in the morning. In fact I get up get changed and go.....no drink no food just get up and go. I've never had cramps or the stitch etc
I was wondering, if I had breakfast first then left it 30 minutes or so, would I get any benefit.
I prefer the get up and go method because then its all over before the day has started and that kind of suits me,
