I was very happy with my efforts yesterday as I achieved my goal of running for 45minute 😀 I wanted to run at around a 7 min per km pace and ended up doing 6.5km in total, so was really happy with that. The great thing was when I finished run, which included Anderson Street hill towards end, I felt as though I could have kept going and that has done a lot for my confidence. My next “long” run was suppose to be an increase of 5mins but I think I may increase by 10 min and aim for 8km in that time. I think that should be alright in terms of treating this old body of mine nice 🙄 If all goes to plan, I should be running around 1 hour 20-30 minutes two weeks before Run 4 Kids and then I can taper back the week before.
It was so nice to run down the Tan and I think this is one of the keys to great running, mixing it up if you can. Now that the kids are almost back at school, I should be able to move away from so many boring street runs.
Weighed myself this morning and almost had a coronary on the scales, I need to lose 4-6kgs and I am damn well going to do it!! I am going to give myself today and tomorrow to get organised, and not stress too much about it, but come Wednesday and it is D Day to start eating “properly” again.
