Now that I've got back into the groove I decided to give 5k a go this morning. What a horrible day!!! I've never started in the rain before but today I have realised weather just brings a whole lot of other dilemas. Find it easy if it's cold but wet....What do I wear??? Think I need to get a water proof jacket. Do I need a shopping trip?
The run was OK although my calfs were a little tight but I put that down to all the dancing I did on Saturday night (it was lots of fun!!) . The good news my compression socks have done the trick and my shins were ok!! My friend Garmin tells me I did 5.03k in 40 min 50 sec and my first and last km were the fastest. I think I need to get better at pacing myself. This is a whole minute and half slower than the first time I did 5km...thought I would have been a little faster by now. Oh well, on to the next run. Wednesday I'm going to just (love saying that) do the 30 mins and see if I can pick up the pace a little.
Enjoy the wet bank holiday!!!!
