When I started Janathon someone (who knows me very well) said, ‘so are you going to do all your runs on the treadmill then?’. I am a person that generally doesn’t like being uncomfortable – cold, wet, too hot etc etc, and to be honest I did think at first that I might do 80/20 indoors/outdoors. However as the weeks have gone on, and I joined my running club, I realise now that I actually prefer running outside…treadmill running just makes me hot and sweaty and bright red and BORED!!!
So todays run was a boring treadmill run – otherwise it would have been an outside run at 10pm, not comfortable doing that on my own! It was 3.62m (6k) in 40m 57s which is an average pace of 11.21 – massive improvement again and I’ll be delighted if I can replicate that outdoors. Another Pb for the 5k – 34m28 – only 5 secs shaved off but still better! I listened to the marathon talk podcast no42 – most interesting and a good background to run to as no beat to get slowed down by!Short post tonight, as it’s late and I’m tired…will catch up on all your blogs tomorrow.
Thanks for all your lovely comments on yesterdays post – have still got the high and am planning another long one tomorrow – the 100 is in sight! 32m to go – 6 days that’s 5.4ish a day – eek!!!
