Normally I don't eat much until after I've run but felt the need for a banana and a yoghurt and apple juice this morning. Then took children to school (I find getting to school in my running clothes at least gives me the feeling I have to run) and set off. Decided to do a 3.15 mile run (Nike Plus didn't want me to do a 3.12 mile one) as I don't like doing 5k as it gives me my current pace in min/km and I can only cope with min/mile (if it's less than 9 I'm OK if not I need to go faster )
So ran along up to a wood and back again, along a straight ish road and turned at the bottom, back up along road towards wood and up another road.
Then the fact I had eaten a bit then caught up with me and I started getting the feelings of a stitch brewing. Plus my legs felt like iron. A quick press of the centre button indicated current pace was 9 min 45 per mile which was not what I wanted....so I told myself I could go faster and so I did.
Got to 27 minutes and was nearly there and ended up with 27 min 31 seconds for 3.12 miles Suppose my new target is 27 minutes but think I may need to accept I can't keep getting quicker all the time
