This morning I went out for my 4th 5k and for the first time I felt alright all the way. I actually enjoyed every minute of it.
Maybe it was because I have had two rest days rather than one, maybe I ate the right combination of things for breakfast, maybe it was because it is not so hot today, maybe it is because I have lost a few kilos and carry around less excess weight - maybe I am just getting fitter!
Whatever the reason, I am really, really happy about it. This is what I am aiming for - being able to run 5k comfortably.
If next weekend's 5k is the same, it is time for new goals...
