Tonight I was back to a proper Juneathon activity: running!
The weather was turning a bit grizzly and drizzly but at least that meant it was a bit cooler than it has been.
A 45 minute out-and-back formed the basis of the session – everyone runs tge same route for 23 minutes and then turns and retrace their steps, aiming to get back to the start in 22 minutes.
I completely overlooked my outbound pace having ended up chatting to a fellow club member meaning I was a bit out of puff at the turn.
It’s amazing how running with others pushes you on and whilst I didn’t manage to get back in 22 minutes – I just overshot 23.
My GPS didn’t pick up a signal in time for the start of the session but I managed to start it on the way back recording that I’d run 5.14k both ways which means I covered 10.28k in a few seconds over 46 minutes.
That would be a PB if it’d been a race, leaving me in an optimistic mood! Looks like I’m getting quicker and I’m only running a couple of times a week. There’s still work to do but bring on the Great North Run!
