I went out tonight planning to go beyond 5k for the first time and after the first few minutes I knew it was going to be a good run and I decided that today was going to be my first 6k.
But then the Endomondo voice told me that I had run 1 km. Already? Me? A lap time below 7, well below 7 even? I could hardly believe it, but made a quick decision to not try to go further than usual, but try to beat my own 5k record instead.
And I did! My second lap time was even lower at 6:24 and the full 5k was done in 33:53. I shaved more than 5 minutes off my previous record and I was 7 minutes faster than last week! Incredible!
It was almost as good a graduation all over again
I'm chuffed to bits by my time, but what on earth has happened to me? How can one's speed increase by that much? Maybe I am really turning into Pippi?
Wish you could see the smile on my face
