So Friday the 17th I did mt attempt. Basically too run 5 miles as fast as I can.
I went out before work so it was still nice and cool, the sun out.
Setting me up for a good start to the day.
Original plan was to do it round West Park. I vetoed this purely on basis I would get bored at three and a half laps.
So opted for the canal which is probably better for my hay-fever as well.
So I ran out 3 miles to come back 2, and then have a cool down trot back too home.
I manged to complete this in an incredible 38 minutes 08 seconds.
After I recovered and look later my stats on Garmin Connect, I realised I also had a fantastic heart for the run and pretty stable and consistent.
Overall very pleased, just wondering though if this was an actual race with a field of competitors would I have been quicker.
