Last run of week 7

Well out at the usual time looked at the black clouds forming in the distance but wasn't overly concerned as I knew i would be finished before it started. Actually managed to syn Laura with mapmyrun(okay 2 seconds out) and we're off nice slow plod round the route and before you know it I am over the bridge on the uphill leg of the main part of the route some sarcastic voice comes over you've done 2k would you like to increase you pace well no I don't so keep the same rate turn into the final section passed my house back up the hill round the the rest home laura calls time start your cool down now walked home and found I covered just over 5k the distance might sound alot but it does take in consideration the two 5 mins at the start and finish however it will be interesting to see how I get on when the run is for a full 30 minutes. Now for two days rest and on to W8

  • Just over 5k! Is that all? Slacking Matey ;) That's amazing, you must be chuffed to bits. I'll see you in week 8 (in the distance) :)

  • i thought I'd let you catch don't want to peak to early after all

  • You tell him.

  • I didn't sync Runkeeper and Laura this morning but switched on Runkeeper after and before the two walks. My pace looks much more impressive but then my distance dropped on Runkeeper, though it is more or less the same as I have been doing. I think that I will be closer to 40 mins for 5K but I am not concerned about that. It is about being able to keep going for 30 mins which I am fairly confident I can do. But well done you on completing week 7. Now it is on to the penultimate week.

  • I'm going to try and start mapmyrun after the 5 min walk next time out and see what that gives it will probably be the same as you but not overly fussed just want to last for 30 mins and then build on that

  • That is the way.. 30 mins run is the idea! :)

  • Another one and in the bag - great stuff - enjoy the rest.

    It's good to hear you chat to 'them' too.

    See you next week

  • Well done you.. did you get wet? :)

  • No unfortunately it can to nothing would have been nice might haven the sting out of the heat

  • You've done well! That's effectively 5k in 40 minutes so if your running pace is slightly faster than your walk you won't be far off! If not on graduation, it won't be long until you get there for sure. But as Oldfloss says, the 30 minutes is the key for now! Keepit up!

  • Thanks It feels good to be so close when I walked the new route last Sunday and got to 4.93 km in the 35 minutes I felt it was doable but you don't believe it till you've done it
