After the disaster that was W6R1, I wasn't feeling too confident about today's run, yet it went much better than expected.
I actually felt I could have carried on going after the first 10 minute stretch and did consider running for the entire 23 minutes. The only reason I didn't was the worry of going too far, too soon, with one eye on Saturday's 25 minute run. I even managed to pick up the pace for the last 5 minutes or so and only felt tired when Laura told me there was only 60 seconds left and the mental block kicked in.
I'll be taking my Garmin watch on Saturday, to see how far I actually cover in the 25 minutes. To be on target for the 5k in 30 minutes, I need to be covering about 2.5 miles (in old money), though I have a feeling it will be closer to 1-1.5. Still, I have a few weeks to work on my pace yet.
Thanks to everyone for the encouragement following my last run!!!
