Ran early this morning, well early for this household and especially on school holidays. I ran 30mins again and covered 4.5km like Tuesdays run. It felt much better today and I think it was because on Tuesday, I ran at 4pm after a busy day with kids and it was a tad warm. I have to say I actually enjoyed myself today. Still wish I could move a little faster though.
Kathy, I think with me is that I have now been running for 18months and usually at conversation speed to keep going. I thought by now that would be long enough for speed to have improved. I didn’t mean for one minute to be disrespectful to 7min/km pace 😳 I have to say when I run at that pace, it is comfortable most of the time and at least I am running. Andrew, I couldn’t believe it when I read your suggestion of reading “No Need for Speed”, I have that book and I went looking for it before I read your comment, at 2.30 in the morning I might add as I couldn’t sleep! You know, when I first read that book I don’t remember reading half the stuff that is in it 😯 It is now going to be my bible for the next few weeks as I think I can really take on board the advice in it at this point. I promise no more negative talk as it is wasted energy, energy I need to conserve 😉
My next planned run will be on Sunday and hopefully down the Tan or Princes Park and I plan to run for 50-60minutes. I just hope I pull up ok because I plan to crack the champers for Grand Final Day on Saturday, my first drink in almost two weeks! I have been such a good girl and was rewarded well when I weighed in on Monday with a loss of 1.2kg. WooHoo, gotta be happy with that 😀
