Beautiful crisp morning, frost lay on the ground but the sun was already shining.
7am and off I go, W5R3!
I knew this was the 20 minute non-stop run.
I didn't map a pre-planned route, in fact it wasn't until I got to the top of the road my feet decided which way to go.
I kept a good pace and raised my head to where I was going, didn't look down or doubt myself, just kept going. And amazingly I was smiling practically all the time.
Mapped the route once home (the other 6 all still cosy and warm!) I did 1.63 miles in the 20 minute running section. Which has been my fastest pace to date, 12 minute miles
I feel that my whole day has been shaped by the most successful run I have done, I've been happier, more energetic and bubbling to tell people about it.
To those reading this with W5R3 to face, trust the plan, trust yourself and do you best to enjoy it.
