roseabi’s Speed Challenge

1K 🎯

Why not add another challenge to my Bridge to 20K/HM eh?! 🀭

Set my baseline for the 1K Speed Challenge at 4:38 this morning πŸ’ͺ

Did my usual 5 min warm up walk and started my 5K to rid the toxic 5-10 mins at the beginning of the run. Paused briefly to get my breathing down to normal before setting off for the 1K.

0.5K came back at 2m 8secs which meant I was on track for a 4m 16secs K! 😱

So, I eased off to set a more realistic and beatable baseline for the next five weeks - cheeky I know 😈 but I also had the remainder of the 5K to go. Don’t @ me! 🀭

Happy running all πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ πŸƒβ€β™‚οΈ

I don’t even dream about those sort of speeds πŸ˜‚. My wildest dreams have me running at 5 something. If I ran at 4 something I’d probably take off!

Well done, great run πŸ‘πŸ‘

Garmin said 4'50" for my kilometre yesterday, but Strava said 4'48".

And the Β½ mile was 3'41" and the 400m was 1'40", all PRs.

I'm hot on your heels, huffing and puffing. πŸ˜‰
