That is true.
After the epic post from yesterday, this is a very quick one, as we are going to watch a film. The plan was to watch it last night, after the Grand Prix, but then it rained and we watched it for 5 hours. Yes, 5 hours. It did have an exciting finish (yay Button).
So, after work today, I went on a run. I have been looking at my pace on Nike+ recently and it seems that I pick up speed towards the end, but a good few miles in. Today I decided not to look at my pace, but just the distance whilst running, and go on feeling. Well, the hills felt hard (of course) and I was very hot by the end- very dry mouth and I think I should have taken a drink with me. But, I did the 6.7 ish mile route in 1 hr 12 (last Sunday it took me 1hr20! But that was very slow!)- and when I just looked on Nike+ my miles were so consistent- 10.22, 10.24, 10.23, one at 10.37 (but I think I had about 3 roads to cross in one small section), 10.22 and 10.23. Hooray! So I can run at a constant speed. Now I just need to work on getting that average speed up a bit.
I am still looking at the Audiofuel options, and I think I have chosen a pack, but I wanted to wait another week or so, just so I am not tempted to go out there and hammer out a crazy fast run or something. No, that doesn’t sound like me at all. Maybe it is a different reason.
Oh, and guess what! I got two mentions on the latest marathon talk podcast! You can upload your race times onto facebook and they do a listener one, two, three for each race (girls and boys)- well no other female posted a time for Stockholm, so my very slow time was the winner! Plus a long email I sent about the fab South Cheshire 20 mile race that I did a while back. 🙂 Hooray!
