After last weeks sluggish 5km after 2 weeks off running, I redeemed myself today with a 23min 34 sec 5km run. Over a minute faster than my best ever time! I felt good and strong and it’s great to be back to running.
I did go on Saturday up and round the red arrow 3 times. Tough up all those stairs, but I was pleased that my muscles didn’t ache the next day! They must be starting to get used to it!
Then on Sunday, the girls were tired after a birthday party in the park in the morning,so I got to go and do our aquathon training alone – so at my pace.
Great run there, pushed by my friend Nicole, then I swam all freestyle – 1400m, that’s definitely getting easier! Then a good 2km run back to the car. Great workout!
This week I’m planning on running more – red arrowing, spartacus and also swimming with the girls. I’m determined to get into the routine of something ever day – as I know I’ll have to do that come my birthday! – plus running!!
