I just ran wk 7 r1 - without Laura. As its all long runs now thought i could do it to my own choice of music, so made a running playlist, and before i went out went through what i thought would be around 25 minutes of running, so i knew what track was my last one before the cool down walk - so i ran it all, struggled a bit for the last few minutes but figured as i have only done one 25 minute run before its not surprising.
Out of curiosity i thought i would add up the length of each track just to be sure i had actually run for 25 minutes - oops - i hadnt - i had run for 29 minutes.
I am stunned...and sure my legs wont be so forgiving for the extra minutes.
now i have a dilemma - week 7 is 25 minute runs - wk 8 28 mins and week 9 thirty..do i ensure the next runs are time right or just run for 30 minutes from now on ?
in distance it was 3.81km - I do run slow..it took me ages to overtake someone the other day, bless him he could hear me and kept looking round to see when i was going to overtake him ..
So a brilliant run but now what to do next run..what would you do??
