I've been trying to do slightly longer runs, not massively, just making sure they're comfortably over 5k. The problem I have is with running out of relatively flat areas. We live sort of at the top of a hill in most directions (even though it's all uphill to get back to my front door) and I don't want to head off the plateau as it'll all be uphill on the way home. So getting longer runs in without falling off the edge is tricky, or so I thought.
I cracked 6k this morning! No, sorry, as the title says I didn't just crack it, I smashed it to smithereens! 6.6k!!!!!
I'll repeat that just in case you didn't get it. 6.6k!!!!!
Oooh, I'm pleased with myself!
Time? about 12 seconds under 44 minutes! Still not the magical 30 mins for 5k, but getting there.
