Before I went out this morning I mapped my route on gbmapometer.com and just out of interest I looked to see where the 5k point would be. Anyway my running jacket and long sleeved top still hasn't arrived so set off in my short sleeves, slightly shivery. Was amazed at how quickly I warmed up though and ended up grateful that my jacket hadn't come, I would have been too tempted to test it out and would have been too hot in that sun. (Oh hello sun, where did you come from?) Of course this is my flat route and I haven't done it since the horrible horrible weather and you know what flat means - yes giant puddles to leap over (Couch to Long Jump maybe?) Anyway had on the the same album I was listening to on W8R1 so I know that 25 minutes comes at the end of a song, so I might have to keep running right to the end of the next song because it would be silly to stop in the middle of a song. Right? I happen to know from last time that the next song is a long one and takes me to 30 minutes. Then at thirty minutes I realised I was so close to where mapometer told me 5k was, so I ran on to there, looked at my phone and endomondo told me I'd done 3.05 miles. 'But isn't 5k 3.1 miles?' I thought to myself and pushed myself a little bit further. To 3.1 miles according to endomondo. I HAD to stop then. HAD to go down to a walk. When I got home I worked it out and 3.10 miles is actually 4.9889664 k, so I didn't do 5k at all! Gutted. Oh well another week to get it right. Ran for 33.19 though, so really all I've got to do is keep this up! Easier said than done. Feeling it in my legs today.
