Another slow run today. I think I just have to face it and say I am crap at running 😦 I did a street run which included a lap of the local lake and then headed home again. I covered 4.5km with max pace 6:07min/km and avg 7:05min/km. All up it was a 31:53 minute run and my plan was to run for 30minutes. I still struggle trying to make the decision to run for time or distance which is why today it was time but Sunday’s run was distance 🙄
I guess I should just be happy I am back out there running again but when I think back to this time last year, I don’t seem to be any better at!! Quite frustrating really. I know I have increased my distances that I do in terms of events. Last year it was the 4/5km events where as now I am doing 8/10km events, I also did the 15km Run 4 Kids in April but I am still as slow as ever. Oh well keep plodding along I guess as I am not going to give it up.
I was thinking today once I have done the 10km MM race, maybe I will do either 8km SiS #3 or the 10km Olympic Dream which are both in November. Not really decided as of yet as another part of me is saying just concentrate on your training and forget events until next year. Having said that, I would really like to do SiS #3 because I love the course but if I do the Olympic Dream there is a medal for all participants 😆 So shallow aren’t I!! Decisions, decisions , oh well, plenty of time to decide I guess 🙂
