So we start another month - welcome to June.
Managed to finish May with a further 5k so that was 37 miles completed in May, and we have already done 3 for June.
Was up and out fairly early as it looks like another warm day, altered the starting part of my route slightly, in an attempt to make it as flat as possible. At 2k of plodding along I was feeling fine so decided to alter the middle part and see if I could keep plodding. Normal route starts to go up hill at around 2.5k, I knew it would extend my total distance but figured if I can keep plodding along when its flat, rather than Walk/Run/Walk it would be better for me.
3k still feeling good and also at 4k, so just kept running (at my plodding pace). My watch told me I had completed 5k but as I was still a little way from home I let the timer keep going and in total I did 6k.
Had fun then working out what my 5k time was (39:36) - 48:05 for 6K but there was some walking at the start and end.
What is more my head was clearly in the place it needed to be - if it wasn't for the hills I probably could have carried on, my average was 8.00/km.
The mental part of running is as important as the physical, just the same as it is with your health.
I am continuing with my Movember's Miles for Mates, to be ho nest I have no idea when it finishes, so I'll just keep updating my time as it improves.
I have also entered the World day of Running Challenge (27 June) and next Sunday I hope to be part of a virtual Relay.
More on both of these later in the week.
After 24 years of helping others to achieve their running goals - it is now my time.
