Week 6 started off pretty good. My Tuesday 4 miler turned into a 5 miler because I love that canal route so much. I even finished with an 11:35 average which KILLED week 4’s average. This is the first time I’ve truly felt a runner’s high. I kept looking down and seeing 10 minute paces, and the third and fourth miles were actually completed in under 11 minutes each. I literally felt like I was floating along.
This must be that elusive runner’s high!
Wednesday’s 2 miler was with the dog again so ended up being another 12:27 pace.
I was moving back home on Thursday and it was raining so I didn’t actually do my Thursday mileage this week. Lame excuse I know.
I made up for it yesterday with this week’s long-run. It wasn’t actually a long-run, it was down as a 5k race. I ran it in 35:06 for an 11:20 pace. I flicked back through my Garmin and counted only a handful of times I’ve ever run a faster 5k. I seriously love seeing my times improve!
Now let’s aim for a flawless week 7. Can’t believe race-day is sneaking up so fast!
