Week 5 Run 2 :)

After a stressful day at school (everybody panicking that they only have ..x.. number of rehearsals left before performances - number varies depending on which year groups I am working with at the time!!), I thought I'd get out and try the second run of Week 5. I was also thinking that if I ran tonight, I had a choice of Thursday or Friday, depending on how the days have gone at school, what time I get home and, most importantly, what the weather forecast is!!

It actually seemed quite easy - once I had got into a rhythm I just kept going, trying to guess at what point Laura would tell me I had run for 4 mins or I had 60 seconds left!!

Interestingly, although I ran exactly the same route as Sunday, Strava measured it is 0.5km shorter!! And although I was definitely running faster, my average time was therefore slower!!

Anyway - kind of looking forward to run 3 - but knowing what it is, am a little nervous about it!!
