It’s been a great week.
I’ve done my Monday-Wednesday-Friday runs, but this weekend I’m having a break…
I did 4 miles in 45 minutes. It was one of my slowest paces, I was running with my work running buddy. I’ve decided I think I’m better running alone, I need to learn how to push myself more (it’s a mental challenge rather than pysical) because I know physically I can do it. I stop and slow down a lot and it’s just me giving up on myself to easy, so this week that was something I wanted to combat.
Tuesday: rest day.
Most my runs have been between 10:30-11:00 min/miles, so I pushed a bit harder to get out of this box. I just skimmed under this with an average of 10:29min/mi on my 5km run. It was a bit of a better effort but I thought I could still do better.
Thursday: rest day.
Friday: in total I did a 4.11mile run. But it was split in two as I ran from work to Victoria, had to run an errand and then ran home, there was about 20 mins break between the two runs. I tried my hardest to run for as long as possible without stopping and managed a good first mile and then after that only stopped at traffic or large crowds of people. The first part of my run averaged at 9’43″/mi and the second averaged at 10’10″/mi which I was very pleased at as it was a greater effort from me physically and mentally.
And I achieved my fastest mile recorded thus far…
And then came the weekend…
1) I’m going on holiday on Monday and I have a lot of prepping to do, waxing, nails, hair, packing etc
2) As I’m away on holiday I won’t be home to celebrate my birthday so I am celebrating with friends!
So at some point next week expect updates on my birthday and holiday as its a wonderful time of year for me! I will also try and continue my training so watch out for those updates too!
What kind of stuff would you like to hear about over the next week? Shall I share my holiday pics and adventures and birthday celebrations?
