Today was my first run since graduating on Saturday.(shiny green graduate badge,thankyou). So as planned in the weeks before graduation I wanted to go through some of the programme again to learn to up the speed. I mean I can run thirty so wont break a sweat doing 1 mimute. How wrong am I and did I actually learn nothing in 9 weeks.
My previous runs had been very slow so nowhere near 5k. Decided to up the pace so went for 5mph did the minute but was exhausted, by the 4th run I realised that 4.3 was still all I could manage
Not sure if this is the right way forward or to continue 30 minute runs and hope to slowly get to 5k. I also need to tackle the outside too as most runs have been on a treadmill.
Going to Ireland tomorrow so 1 otel has a gym to do a longer run but will have to go outside but loads of quiet beaches that I intend to run on.
