This morning I met up with Sam Richardson to catch up, but we also enjoyed a steady 10.7km around the centre of London. Having run a 11km and a 8.5km this week the legs were feeling tired, so we took is slow and enjoyed catching up over 1:21:54 at a pace of 7:35/km.
The run included some PBs:
- Best estimated 1/2 mile effort (4:08)
Being my usual clumsy self I managed to slice my thumb before starting the run so ended up with a bloody hand by the end of the run – obviously my heart was working so hard it kept pumping the blood out!!!
Today was an 8.5km run down to Holbury and back. I did the run in 56:13 at a pace of 6:36/km. Nice to be out in just a base layer for the first time in 2017.
This takes me to 151.1km for 2017 which is a nice milestone to pass.
I managed it in 1:17:15 at a pace of 7:00/km. I mucked up the hydration and so ended up popping into The Heath for a lovely pint of tap water which added several minutes to the time. I was pleased that even with that pit stop I still managed to average 7 minutes per kilometre. Also I achieved my 2nd best 1 mile effort at 9:03.
Absolutely no need to panic but….
So in February I managed 10 runs totalling 45.23 miles or 72 kilometres.
- Average pace: 11:25 min/mi
- Average speed: 5.26 mph
- Total calories burnt: 7,010
The aim for March is to get some serious mileage completed in preparation for the marathon at the end of April.
Tonight I managed an 8.5km run in a time of 55:33 with a pace of 6:31/km which I was really pleased with.
Today has been freezing cold, windy, and full of driving rain. So what more would you want to do with your day than run 10km?
I managed 10.2km in 1:12:32 at a pace of 7:04/km. During the run all three base layers that I was wearing got soaked through from the rain so I was glad to finish!
I was really pleased with my more consistent pace for the first 5.5km, I now just need to keep practicing to be able to manage that for the other 36.7km of the marathon!!!!
