I'm just back from a speed session with the running club that I do 5k runs with on Thursdays. They talked me into Monday madness and speed sessions by telling me I would improve my pace and it would help my distance training.
Get this.... I was sprinting!!!! Oh there's more, I was sprinting UPHILL!! It doesn't stop there! I was sprinting uphill and still smiling!! (Facts might help here, the fast bits are very short bursts and the slow resting bits are much longer but I still did it).
I loved every minute of it, I got to know 2 new people and spoke to several more. I can't wait till the next run on Thursday (I'm sure my aching legs will appreciate it after tonight) and more speed next week
There's a big fat grin on my red blotchy face
