Week 9 Run 2 today and I ditched Laura. I just put my ipod on random shuffle and of went body and I. It was a beautiful morning to run. A little rain, a little sun, a little breeze. It was just the sort of morning we runners (lol) dream of. It's a pity that child number 3 thought last night was a good night for being up all night so I was feeling a bit tired. So much so that when my ipod started choosing somewhat slower than normal tunes I was fairly grateful. As I had no Laura I needed to quess how long I had run, but since this is a fairly well trodden route of mine I felt ok about it. I choose my end point and even put in a bit of sprint at the end. There were no gremlins, no doubts, very little uncomfort. I was feeling pretty good.
That was until I looked at MyFitnessPal. Yes I'd run for 31m33sec YES!! That was the good news. The bad? Well according to the app I had only covered 2.87k. Considering at the weekend I did 4.5k in less time I was gutted. Either the way markers at the weekend were wrong, the app was wrong (not unheard of as the gps drops out) or I really did run that slowly. No wonder I had no gremlins, they's out run me, grrr Still it was a great run.
Can I managed to put it all together for my final run on Thursday? I'm not sure as I only have a limted time on Thursday so my graduation run might be moved to the weekend. We shall see. I really want to finish by doing the 5k.
