Oh my goodness. It's week seven run two, and I (dramatic pause) was (ditto) running. Not plodding, but really tootling along. It was late again but I went a different route and it was just sublime, despite a sore knee before going out. The weather was lovely, the night sky was clear, I just had my running kit on and I felt like I deserved to be wearing it. I slowed a little in the middle part of the run but then got faster again. When I checked the actual running section of my total, my pace was 6.72 minutes/km which is awesome for me. That translates to 33.6min for a 5k if I could reproduce that speed over 5k. i just can't believe it.
Now I'm just praying that my knee is going to hold up. I will be devastated if it fails me now. I knew I had the weakness before I started, but this is the first time I've had a day where it was hurting a bit through the day. I actually think that it's not entirely the running but the fact I've had to carry my daughter so much recently because she's been unwell and clingy, as the right side of my neck is also playing up from an old injury.
