I think I was lucky to have a rest day yesterday, as it was horrible - cold and windy. This morning I woke up early and decided to get outside instead of going back to sleep. It was bright and sunny, frosty, with icy puddles. Gorgeous.
Week 5 run 2 went really well, with an extra bit at the end, as it was completely flat, so I had to do some extra walking to cool down. Interesting that the fastest (relatively speaking) running I did was in that extra bit - I'd have thought that would have been slowest. Maybe my muscles just take a while to warm up, or maybe they just don't like hills, even baby ones. If I could have run at that pace all the way (which I couldn't, yet) it would take me 43 minutes to do 5k, which is still pretty slow! It actually took me 49 minutes to get round my whole 5k circuit, but I am able to run more and more of it - and that is 4 minutes faster than when I started. And the longest bit of running went on for 13 1/2 minutes. Only 6 1/2 more needed on Tuesday! I think I'll find a nice flat place to run!
Most important thing though - I'm enjoying running, and getting fitter. Brilliant.
