First day of my running week and what a fantastic start it has been.
The weather is so lovely, not too warm and not too cold
I had such a good run, my best for such a long time.
My running pace has been slowing down for quite some time now and I was starting to think I would never get back to how fast I was but fortunately today has proved me wrong.
I got a personal best 5k, I just had so much energy. I really enjoyed my run, so much so that I lost track of time and landing up finishing my run miles from home (ok maybe not miles but far enough lol).
When I got home I completed my strength training workout. This time I increased the weights I was using, nothing heavy just a 10 kg dumbbell in each arm which was great for forward lunges and holding just 1 dumbbell for squats. My arms feel as worked as my legs now 🙂
Distance – 5.46 mi
Pace – 7:20 /mi
Time – 40m 7s
Best estimated 5k effort (22:03)
Best estimated 2 mile effort (14:06)
Time for work, Night all
