7 mile run done today – I feel awesome! I only intended to do 4 but my legs felt great and breathing was good so I extended it. Am really pleased with my splits – Mile 1 was slow because i started runkeeper before i left the house and was a bit faffy! Mile 5 was a killer hill and by mile 7 I was just tired, overall tho am well chuffed as I can now comfortably maintain an 11-something minute mile over a distance. And I bumped into a buddy from running club and arranged to meet for a run Sunday – bonus!
Thanks for your kind comments re my drugs etc, they helped me put things in perspective and instead of stressing more today I just put on my shoes and ran. Old bag especially reminded me I’ve only been doing this 4 months – I’m so much stronger than I was before i started and every run I do adds to that. Go me yay!! And go all of my virtual running buddies too!
