This weekend, I scheduled a run on a day the forecast was: 100% chance of rain and thunderstorms.
I guess I was hoping that the weathermen got it wrong!
I woke up bright and early at 5:30am, met up with my brother-in-law at 7am and we ran/walked a distance of 15km around the river, bridges and city.
I probably ran about 12km and walked 3km. My pace averaged around 6:30min/km.
I felt great after! I wasn’t drained or exhausted or suffering any pains.
I think I’ll work on some interval running to increase my speed and strength.
But overall I’m happy with doing regular 12km distances and I’ll stick with that for a bit. I might even be able to hit the 21km half marathon mark earlier than I thought!
Anyway, turns out that we started so early that we missed all the rain and thundery action. We didn’t get wet at all.
We even managed to squeeze in a coffee and chat later. Brilliant start to the weekend!
