Well today was the big day, weather was perfect, laced up the new Brooks Running Shoes at 6am and with Eye of The Tiger blasting in my ear holes off I went. Noticed the difference immediately the cushioning of the soles felt so much better, on my hips and legs, I got into a nice steady stride and with speed cameras flashing like the paparazzi as I went by (might be exaggerating a bit there) before I knew it I’d reached the park which is at the end of my 5k.
Through the gates I ran, not much in the tank, but determined to squeeze out my last bit of energy I picked up the pace....the music faded out and the small voice from my Fitbit said 5km in 30:25, I punched the air with joy😁 as it’s a PB for me 🎉🎉 not quite under the elusive 30 mins but only 26 seconds out.
Checked Fitbit when I got home and found in total I’d covered over 10k, walking back from the park, interspersed with running, so I was well chuffed. 😄
Run 2 with the new Brooks on Wednesday....determined to get to 5k in under 30mins.....even if it’s only once !
