Completed a 6.5km run this morning. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Averaged 14 per mile, which considering the terrain isn't too bad. Steep hills etc . Was a great run. Could have run for longer , breathing etc is nearly there now. Can talk to friend whilst running and take in the surrounding scenery . Just a week ago I was struggling with even a mile of trail running. Now after pushing myself to get out each morning the results speak for themselves.
Try and improve upon time per mile now, however the nature of the trail will dictate speed as can be and is tricky to navigate in places. If I can do it at 51 yrs of age anyone can.
