The excess eating yesterday (as my 'reward' for attending the dentist ) didn't put me off my stride today. The nip in the air put me off going out running initially, but when the day had reached the balmy heights of 1.5°C I headed out in cropped leggings and long sleeved running top over the short sleeved one.
I used my Speed2 podcast today (5K+ Speed, doubled) and I did 10 or 11 of the 12 intervals. I lost count, but know it was definitely 10+ which took me to 23 minutes running. I then switched to the rock/pop 'running tracks' on my mp3 player and tried to keep the pace steady until I reached 5K. I then allowed myself to slow a smidgen, and kept going until I reached the village post office where I had to stop to go in to collect a parcel. 7.7 km in 46 mins
I was delighted when I saw my stats - I managed to beat the previously elusive "5K in 30 mins" for the first time, doing the first 5 km in 29.42
