General impression: Great news. Tonight was the first night in EVER that I have felt in control of “cycling my feet” and actively running. This resulted in a faster run than I’ve previously been used to – in fact my average pace was more than a minute quicker than last time out. The pictures below show the difference.
Trouble was, I struggled to keep my breathing under control for long enough to complete the two minute intervals. On most of them I lasted about 1 min 45 seconds. To get round 5k I need form AND fitness! When will I get both?
Patience, I think, is key. And in the meantime, I got a PB on my 1km time so I’ll take the wins where I can thank you very much!
