After the worse night my baby girl has had for a while (I was up 5 times with her, poor little love has a cold) I really didnt feel like getting up and going out for the first of week 7's runs. I toyed with the idea that maybe I'd be better off doing it in the evening....I knew if I decided that I wouldn't probably get the chance.
So 6.30am and I just get ready, eat a banana have some squash and off I go. 5 minute warm-up, during which I was already thinking with a defeatist attitude knowing I had a straight 25min run ahead.
Should I have just stayed in bed??
No, I had a really great run, slightly changed my route, included a new footpath into a figure 8 route. Didn't seem to hear Laura as much today, but really started to focus and enjoyed the run, heard 12.5minute marker and felt really proud of myself and that boosted me to carry on.
Used my cycling gloves today, glad I did as it was a bit chilly.
Total running distance of 1.94miles in the 25minutes. Gives me an average pace of 12.5mins a mile. Steady and slow as always.
3.1km, so not going to hit 5km in 30minutes but running steady for that continually will such an amazing feeling, 5km will come.
