Felt like a hard and slow run today, but I ended up with the fastest average pace I’ve had since I started tracking these runs on Strava. A bit of a surprise really.
I actually kept going a little beyond the official finish, just to see if I could get to a particular point on the route, which I did. It meant I ran 30:13 minutes, apparently, so I am feeling reasonably hopeful about Week 9 - exciting stuff!
And, yes, I did extra brisk walking to cool down, beyond Laura’s timing just for insurance purposes.
