After many 5k consolidation runs, 24 and 3 per week, 120 kms in 8 weeks decided I would test out my stamina over the 10 k distance.
Been having problems receiving Laura’s Stamina & speed podcast in the Woodland area.Funny no problem with Stepping Stones.🤔 I have used them in other locations.🤔
Enjoyed the run, 2.2kx5 around the beautiful coastal/woodland park.Hung onto all the C25k teachings and completed.Reasonably contented with my slow pace🤔, happy with my fairly even pace,particularly when my goal was to run every step without stopping.Did not stop even for water, hydrated well, and positioned a couple of water bottles at two points around the circuit on my fist lap, rather than carry the backpack.🙈😂
Some reservations now on accuracy of Strava distances.🤔Walked and used Strava to log distance of my route today.The PARKRUN is helpful in that way with an official and reliable benchmark.🤔
Was shocked to learn that Strava logged my local football field as 300 m round the perimeter while I had it nearer 400m when using it during the C25k programme .🙈 Just as well distance and pace are not the focus and goal , just a sustainable 30 mins.
I thought my personal post consolidation phase plans and goals were quite clear and fixed, bit more information and clarity required.🤔🙈😂
Still, keep building up the miles and running body and enjoy the beautiful outdoors and weather.👏👏👍
