I went for a spontaneous run the other morning. It was my first proper run in 8 weeks!!
I pushed myself to run a steady pace and went for 10.5kms – which I’m so happy about. I had no sore feet, knees or muscles – yay!
I ran the distance in 1 hour 5 minutes, but I had to slow down to walk a few times, and I had to stop for water. I ran at an average pace of 6:15/km (that was according to my sports tracker, but mathematically, I think my average should be 6:20?)
Anyway, I’m not too fussed about numbers. It’s a great comeback for me!
I’m aiming to be able to run 10kms without slowing down to walk.
And I’m aiming for an average pace of 6:00/km, which means I should run 10km in 1 hour. Baby steps!
Here’s to feeling like I’ve emerged from a slow rut and feeling fantastic about my health again!
Cheers everyone and have a great week :)
