New 10k PB on a 50 minute steady run

Friday 17th May 2019

I had a fantastic run today, It was a bit cooler but the rain held off even though my weather app reliably informed me it was going to rain.

Today was a 50 minute steady run so I was hoping to cover at least 6 miles, I ran very hard up and down the hills and managed to get several person bests.

  • Distance

    6.74 mi

  • Pace

    7:17 /mi

  • Time

    49m 7s

  • Best estimated 10k effort (45:52)
  • Best estimated 2 mile effort (13:57)
  • Best estimated 1 mile effort

Time to get ready for work. Night all

What a great day for running

Tuesday 7th May 2019

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
