I set off this morning to run w6r3 with trepidation as I have really struggled through the first 2 runs of this week.
As usual, the first 10 - 15 minutes were the most difficult. (It always seems to take me a while to establish a running/breathing rhythm and, until I get into this pace, I tend to gasp and stagger along.) It was a beautiful morning, perfect running conditions and before I knew it, my endomondo app was telling me I had covered 4K with probably about 3 mins of the 25 mins left to run.
As I was feeling pretty good, I decided to push on and see if I could complete the 5K - and I did it, just within 30 mins
stats (not including warm up and warm down walks): 3.14 miles (5.06K) in 29 mins 57 secs. Av speed 9.32 min/mile, max speed 8.19 min/mile.
Am going to stick with the plan for the remaining three weeks, but just couldn't help testing the holy grail of the 5K
