Um... YAAAAAYY! Longest run so far!
6.93km / 4.3 miles, (or 7km give or take) 39 minutes, Avg pace 5'38"/km, 541 calories burnt. Toma!
I did 4 minute run, 1 minute power walk for 40 minutes and this was the result. I am really, really happy with it (if you can't tell). Even more so, that I know I could have kept going, but I'm sticking to my plan, I'll aim for 5 miles on Friday before tapering for the race.
I saw my personal trainer in the gym, I told him how after the hour workout yesterday it now hurts when I sneeze (really quite annoying when you've got hayfever) - he said, "well its good to see you back in the gym. I'm impressed, that's dedication." - Aw yeah.
But actually I really am dedicated to this now. More than I've possibly ever been dedicated to anything in my life. It's great to see those little orange lines grow in strength, time & consistency. It's great just to prove to myself that I'm doing it, doing something I thought of as impossible a few months back. Don't get me wrong, there's still a loooooong way to go and many more sweaty miles, but for me, right now, this is proving a lot to myself, (and you know, if I can prove the odd person wrong here & there I'll be even happier).
Anyway, another happy run :) I'm feeling more prepared now for the Race next Saturday and actually wanting to do it. It will be an eventful day, to say the least.
Fingers crossed for Friday & a 5 mile target! xo
