W9R1 - Just a run in the park

Just? who am I kidding. I just ran for 30 minutes and it feels great. So far I have avoided the speed up at the end if you feel good option and just carried on at the same pace but I think next time I am going to go for it. I managed to run 4.85k in 30 minutes today so maybe a cheeky stepping up of the pace would get me to the 5k mark, or maybe leave me in a gasping heap.

Yes it went well. I'm still slipstreaming you. Hope you don't mind!

Run 2 on Wednesday and Parkrun graduation run on Saturday hopefully - perhaps we'll cross the line together unless you burst past me on the final straight!

Great run. By my calculations you'd hit 5k in under 31 minutes... so if your next one is as close, go bag that 5k! That's gonna be better than trying to up the pace.

you are so close to that 5k, I am sure the adrenalin would keep the gasping heap at bay :)

Maybe it would. I'll see how it goes on the day next time out.
