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 🙂
My name is Neil, an average runner, founding member of Clair parkrun in Haywards Heath, enthusiastic member of Burgess Hill Runners, 50 marathons so far including 16 over marathon distance and three 100 milers, Leader in Running Fitness since mid 2014, all things animal welfare and vegan since February 2016. Hoping my knees don't give up on me too soon.
