10K runner – week five

Monday – Physio again BUT it’s looking like I’ll get cleared for yoga and strength training on Thursday!

Week 6 Day 2 – still doing 10 minute runs but with a 3 minute walk in between them instead of 5.

Total time:  33 minutes Total Distance:  3.9 km Pace: 8:30 min/km

Tuesday – I wasn’t feeling very well Tuesday so I took a rest day.

Wednesday – What ever started yesterday hit today. I stayed home from work ill and slept more than I can remember.

Thursday – Physio – And cleared for yoga!

Still feeling a little off so no running today BUT at this point I know I have to run Friday – Saturday – Sunday in order to hit my 4 runs a week minimum!

Friday – Week 6 Day 3. I’ve been nervous about this for days: 5 minute warm up walk; FIFTEEN minute run; 3 minute walk; 5 minute run; 5 minute cool down walk. But I went out and did it! Yippie!

Total time:  33 minutes Total Distance:  3.9 km Pace: 8:26 min/km

Saturday – Week 7 Day 1 – well if I could do a 15 minute run, I could do a 20 minute one right? Yep! 5 min warm up – 20 min run – 5 min cool down

Total time:  30 minutes Total Distance:  3.52 km Pace: 8:32 min/km

Toby went out and bought a flat of strawberries so there was jam to be made. I’m doing up another post for drunken strawberry jam but here’s my “before” picture:

Sunday – Week 7 Day 2 – Repeat yesterday’s 5 min warm up – 20 min run – 5 min cool down

Total time:  30 minutes Total Distance:  3.51 km Pace: 8:34 min/km

Saturday and Sunday were both pretty hot and humid so both runs were done at 8:30 and 9:30 at night respectively. I really gotta try and get to bed earlier so I can get up and run in the morning!

But I was super happy I still went out and ran on Sunday despite the late hour. I was rewarded with this view from my doorstep:
