There are the stats - this is not a fast run, a full minute slower than the last timed 5k I did. I can only blame the knee injury causing 15 days off of all running, (only had my first treadmill session this last Monday) and the HEAT! It was 18c at 8.15pm when I went out, and I'm not used to running in those sort of temperatures. I took water with me, and used it all on the cool down walk, sweat running off me. Add the fact that after yoghurt and toast for brekkie, I had a cheese salad roll at 11.30am and a cuppa soup at 4.30pm and nothing else all day. I'm trying to drop a few pounds to help the knee poundings and to help my times but it's hard work when trying to burn off calories with diving about the streets like an old eejit!!
Now stretched, showered, and had a quorn curry for tea...boring but 260 cals so I've burned more than I've eaten for my meal.
