First Run After Graduation

Well we had the Race for Life in Salisbury today but I stupidly didn't enter it and wished I had! Anyway after reading what everyone else did after graduation I decided to try and do some "interval" training with some of the earlier podcasts - get me!!. I speeded up for the 60 second bit and jogged for the walking bits and managed to get to the end with a lot of heavy breathing. Amazingly I averaged 8 minute miles instead of my usual 11.5 and covered almost 2miles. I can't believe how much fitter I actually am.
