Did 30 minutes of faster running today, mostly on the flat, but with one bit up a slope. About 3 weeks ago I did my first effort at going faster after graduation, and managed 18 minutes at average 7.3kph (slow for lots of people, but faster for me).
Today I did 30 minutes at average 7.6kph (4.7mph - at last, faster than I can walk!), and the first five minutes were at 8.2kph. Even the last 5 minutes were 7.4kph, which I was really pleased with, as my usual pace is about 6.5-6.8 kph.
Much better than my last run in the dark and cold!
