|What a great feeling…|
OK. I’ve gone a bit crazy. When I got home this evening from my afternoon 20km cycling I felt that I had a little bit more energy left so I decided to go for a midnight run.
I ran for 10km tonight and feel really great apart form a blister on my left feet. I keep getting a blister there. Must discover why. I think my left feet is smaller than my right which means it has a bit more room to move in the shoe.
Tonights splits are:
58 min 30 secs for first 5 km
4 mins 10 secs per lap
49 mins 43 secs for final 5 km
3 mins 33 secs per lap
Total time 108 mins 13 secs (1hr 48 mins 13 secs).
This is now my current personal best beating the last time of 1 hr 50 mins. Nothing suprising as I’ve only done it twice but still any improvements should be celebrated and welcomed.

Negative Splits yayyyy.
The last 5km was faster than the first 5km by 8 mins 47 secs which is not suprising as all the lap times for the last 5km was under 4 mins. I’m really happy that the last 2 laps was under 3 mins. Given time, as I lose weight and my technique improves and my stamina improves I think I have a real shot at 1 hour for the 10 km. If I can sustain 2:42 for 14 laps I’ll hit a 33 min mark for the 5 km. Let’s see what happens in the next 3 months.
I have to keep an eye on my resting heart rate in the morning as I don’t want to suffer from over training.
