Today I almost ran a PB. I seriously could not have come any closer without actually running the PB. I missed it by one second. ONE SECOND! AGHT!
In other news today, I was meant to run 6-8km tempo, which I worked out to around 6:08 min/km (yes, I am slow!). Instead I conked out at 5km, having not managed to keep above 6:00 min/km. In the end, the near-miss looked a lot (in fact, exactly) like this:
So, I guess what I’m taking away from this run is that I need to work on slowing down – I have two speeds: flat out (for me) and cruising, so I really need to work on getting these tempo runs right. I’d really like to also work out what my heart rate is actually doing.
Now I am going to have some amazing smelling minestrone soup, a piping hot shower, and a rest (from running – not from Janathon!) tomorrow.
Here are the stats:
Intended: 6-8km tempo
Actual: 5km @ 5:46 min/km
