Well I decided to use the shorts again and no knee support 😱 And so off we went on the normal 5 minute warm up only now I have to use a stopwatch as no Laura 😢 Well got to Tesco's and started the run and almost immediately the usual obstacles started to appear a Woman with two small Children looking at something in a hedge who as I approached moved on and another Woman pushing a buggy stopped to give way to me.... Things had started well 🤗
As I glanced down as I new I had come to the point where Laura used to come on and say 'OK that's 5 minutes and You should be settled into a steady pace' and yep just on 5 minutes and miss that bit of the C25K App but I just have a virtual Laura running with me... As I started the climb up the hill I realised that now I had done 10 minutes and no cramps or knee problems the Pixie Dust was really working 😂 I changed the route to now make it a full 5K run and it continues up the hill so a bigger challenge.
As I passed the only bit I run 'off road' I was feeling good and then started to dodge the brambles and overhanging rambling rose bushes and thought 'Are these bushes that are beyond the property wall the responsibility of the house owner or the council? As I cannot believe how many there are on these roads! It makes walking and running a constant problem... I glanced down and the watch was showing 28 minutes I picked the pace up again and when I finally got to Tesco's again it was 30 minutes so the warm down started...
As I was walking the 5K was announced and so I glanced at my watch and 34 minutes 2 seconds so another PB and getting closer to the 5K in 30 minutes 👏 So maybe by the end no of next week I will be within 30 minutes and hopefully building on the times to come down... So I hope everyone has a Good Weekend and if You are running the weather is not to bad for You... 😉
