So my plan was to rest today as I haven't had a proper rest day since a week last Friday.
But that plan went out of the window when I bought new running shoes on Friday 😀.
So out I went into the very chilly air this morning, brrrrr.
This time I enabled the voice cues on my Fitbit to tell me distance/time/pace as I was running.
It was very cold on the warm up walk but I was sweating profusely soon enough. The first voice cue came in at 1k at a time of 6,11 and I was really happy with that.
Even the horrible period I get between 5-10 minutes in didn't seem so bad today.
At around the halfway mark I decided to keep running and see if I could manage 5k, provided I had anything left of course.
Before I knew it Laura was telling me I had 5 minutes left, then 60 seconds, then stop running. I glanced at my phone and I had covered 4.63k so I decided to carry on.
2 and a half minutes later I had ran my first ever 5k 😀 Well 5.01k as I wanted to make sure!
To say I am over the moon is an understatement. So many firsts in one run.
Best k at 6,11
Best pace of 6,29
First 5k I've ever ran
Longest run at 32 minutes 30 seconds
I can't stop smiling.
Bring on the rest of week 9 I say.
Have a great day everyone.
