Gremlin a in the North West

So the Gremlins were definitely around and about today. Sparky66 they got me too. I managed 4km at race pace of 6.30min/km short by 1km. I did finish the 5km but a little slower. Melly4012 I am using the asics app post run and aiming for a sub 30 mins 5km eventually. I am also aiming to increase distance. The app let's you decide your aims.

Anyway the I am putting the Gremlins down to not having run since last Tuesday. I know I can build it up again.

I think I am going to take a leaf out-of yatesy book and plan to run every day if possible. It makes me feel good and stops me snapping at everyone. I also have 4 and a half weeks until holiday and want tone be as toned as possible.

  • Should say Gremlins in the title x

  • Oh no, the thought of anybody copying me when it comes to run-related decisions fills me with dread! You know I wear these right?:

    Nice run though, I can't wait until I complain about 6.30min/km :-).

  • Yes I know about your vibrams . I use the picture to freak out my daughter when she is misbehaving

  • Nice, real nice :-).

  • Thanks for that! I agree with Yatesco - 6.30 is a great pace for 4km! I think my watch has a race function which allows me to set a time and distance and then will tell me if I'm ahead or behind pace. I know what you mean about wanting to run every day though. It's a rest day (and a busy one at that) and I've been sitting at the computer attempting my masters dissertation all day and have been desperate to get out and run, even if just as a procrastination tool (NEVER thought I'd want to exercise to get away from work, how things change!). Instead I've settled for spending most of the day catching up on the forum and running vicariously through everyone on here :)

  • Ha , maybe it's a uni procrastination thing. I have just started my research project for my masters (ethics application is due 11th July) .

    It is the asics app that set the pace. I am just trying to do as I am told x

  • I can manage under 6:30/km for about 2k, but haven't yet got the stamina to do a whole 5k. So sub 30min 5k is still a dream - but we all need dreams!
