Week 8, Day 1. I don't know why I say 'Day' and not 'Run'?!

Dodged the rain at 6:00 this morning to get the first 28 minute slog out of the way!

The first half was really hard going as I couldn't find my stride, but as soon as I got past 15 minutes, the rest seemed to fly by. I was tired finishing though and it was the first time throughout the programme that I really did sweat. Ewwww! :-)

PB in terms of distance (4.45k) and pace (8:29 per k) so I'm happy with that and hope to get that magic 5k by the end of week 9. Week 9 is next week. Wow!

Hopefully my next run will be in my brand new Brooks Beast running shoe. No more sore knees and calves for me! Touch wood.

Good runs peeps!!

I say "Day" as well, so you're not alone! That's a very good pace. I'm nowhere near that yet. Maybe one day. :)
