W8r1 - so very slow, but I love it!

Foggy morning here by the water and weirdly 9 degs after yesterday's heavy frost. W8R1 is done, but I am still so slow. I don't use any tracking gadgets on my run but I know how far the loop I'm taking is, and it's nowhere near 5k - optimistically it's just over 4k including both of the walks. I don't want to feel demoralised about this as I'm genuinely proud of the 28 minutes, but it does knock your confidence a bit... On the positive though, there comes a point just after half way when I smile and I know I'm doing it and in that moment I love this running lark!

Just stay slow and enjoy.. the runs are all about relaxing and going with those new running legs!

Enjoyment is the thing.. find your happy pace and just run :)
