As many of you who follow this blog would know, i recently found out the speed i was running was in fact slower than i wanted. So to fix it i chose to run faster, pretty easy huh?1km in 4:07min. Again even with the faster pace the time it took to speed the treadmil up cost me breaking the 4:00min mark. i went from running 900m at 14km/hr to running 1000m at 15km/hr over night. It might not be a huge increase but im glad im on the right track once and for all.
The run today started to bring back memories of my teenage years, when i was training for football i used to run 3km at 18km/hr on the treadmil, it was funny to realise i still use the same distances as ‘feelers’ on the run. For example at 250m i shouldn’t be breathing to hard at around 50%, every 250m that % goes up a little. I stood off after 1km puffing pretty hard, i know there is still more to give before i need to slow and im excited to face the challenge that tomorrows run brings!
