Changing Perceptions

Last summer if I had been asked what constituted an easy 5k, I would have pointed to the car keys!

Tonight my 10k training plan called for an easy 5k. It seems that now my perception of easy is anything that doesn't leave me gasping and feeling like I need an ambulance.

Consequently my easy run became a PB - 5k in 33.42 - Flippin fantastic...

Feeling happy tonight!

Happy running everyone! xx

  • NAUGHTY!!!!!  An easy run is supposed to be easy - not PB's !! :)  Should never get PB's during training runs - you get them at places like parkrun or races :) 

    A very famous running trainer says " do not leave your best times on the training track" :)

  • It was sort of an accident, honest :)

  • I long for the day when 5K will constitute an easy run.

    Well done, you!! :)

  • I think its just as you increase your distances, and I managed 8k for the first time on Sunday, 5k becomes more normal and less of an obstacle. Then suddenly times start to improve without even trying. 

    It will happen for you too. x

  • I'm banking on it... but have to remember it's a long-term plan.  I'm a little impatient :(

  • Have a look at this
