Easter Monday run

Did a lovely 5k this morning - not as sunny as the last few days which meant the path was a lot quieter πŸ˜€

I am slow, but managed the fastest pace since I got my Garmin at Christmas - under 8 min/km. This was my 2nd fastest run, after a Parkrun in December. Happy with that. I'm aiming just to consolidate a good 5k rather than build up distance. I did today's run in just over 39 minutes. My 24 year old daughter, who is ultra-fit compared to me, did pretty much the same run yesterday, 10 minutes faster. To repeat, as a 57 year old never-runner till July last year, I'm happy with that πŸ˜„

  • Good! πŸ™‚ Have fun πŸ˜ƒ It's great int it

  • Loving it (at the moment anyway!) mw

  • Absolutely- my daughter in law is half my age and much faster ! And does marathons. But you and I are out there running which is fantastic. Since finishing week 9 I've been consolidating doing 5k in about 37 mins or if short of time, 4K in about 31 mins. I am happy doing that and am fitter -all my work skirts swivel round my waist!!!

    So do what suits you! And enjoy!

  • You're a bit faster than me! Sadly, no real change in my clothes but I know I could improve my diet - there have been a lot of cakes around lately, for various reasons!

  • no change on the scales to speak of but I'm definitely changing shape, you will too so keep it up.

    And it's so nice to hear from others who are not quite so fast - the other runners round here all seem to be petite, half my age and twice as fast !!!

  • That's just how it should be - running for fun, no pressure. As long as we keep getting out there I don't think it matters. I'm building up distance, but it's more because I can and I really want to see how far this 56 year old body can take me.

  • Jaysee. You'll be amazed πŸ™‚
