I went for a Stamina run this morning and conditions were perfect, just cold enough to keep me cool, but not enough to make extremities ache. I breezed though the podcast and decided to round it up to to a 5 miler by running 0.6 miles between 2 gates a few times.
When Robo-Laura piped up at 5 miles I had knocked a mighty 22 seconds off my 5 mile PB (now 53:01) and I was still feeling great so I carried on to do 6.27 miles with a 10K time of 1:06:33, woo-hoo!
I'm still planning on doing my 10K river run on Sunday, but I think that I'll enjoy it more knowing that I can do it.
I'm also pleased that my lap times were all between 9:41 and 11:19 so I'm getting better at keeping to a pace.
Best of all though is that I now have 1010 calories in the bank which I need as it is a colleague's birthday and tonight is take-away night - nom-nom
