I wasn't aiming to run 5km this morning, I was planning to do my usual 30 minutes. Going further was my plan for next week. However, I got to 3 minutes to go (which was a surprise) and realised I had less than 700m to go before hitting the magic 5km mark. I picked up the pace and decided to go for it. The last bit of my route was down a small hill and round the duck pond so not challenging. I reached the pond with 400m to go and was hoping that the duck pond was about 400m in circumference, ideally a little bit more so I wouldn't need to finish on the hill.
The duck pond is less than 400m so I ran up the hill - no point in stopping half way up and it really isn't a big hill (though it was huge in the first few weeks of c25k). At the top I looked at my watch - 5.01 km Barrier broken.
So, my next challenge is to figure out how to get my TomTom watch to measure km and not time, a nice challenge to have.
