usually a plodder....
A strange thing happened to me today....
I've just come back from an evening run, logged my route and time online and it appears that I have suddenly turned into a super-speedy runner. For me... that is!
l was tired beforehand and nearly didn't get off my **se to go out for the run. Normally i do 5km in about 3mins but tonight I did 5.26km in under 30 minutes
Not sure where the spurt of speed came from as I didn't feel particularly energetic!
Big Mexican wave as that was the best one ever!
I actually meant about 32-35 minutes, depending on how energetic I'm feeling. Three minutes would've made me faster than Paula!!
Maybe I have a sub 60 minutes 10km in me after all...... I was thinking that that wouldn't be a possibility for me a few months ago. I must go out on my 10km route shortly. I have nice little route which is mostly flat and goes along Brighton seafront & back again giving me potential to keep the speed up....
No mushy peas beforehand or anything else which would've given me that extra whoooosh!
Maybe it was the music I was listening. Unfortunately my mp3 player was on random play so I'll probably never be able to recreate the experience...
