Yesterday I received a package in the mail from the lovely Shelley. I’ve asked her if it was possible she mailed me an issue of Fitness Magazine. I’m thinking of taking a subscription but never read it. She said yes immediately, mailed it on Monday and it was here on Friday. I took a quick look at the magazine and I love it. Thank you so much Shelley for mailing this to me, you are very sweet.
Tomorrow Bella’s got a playdate. I’m meeting two friends who both got a dog in a forest where we will walk with the doggies. While the doggies play, we can catch up. Hopefully it’s going to be dry tomorrow afternoon.
Yesterday I still was very tired, which is more normal than exception the last weeks and I decided to skip my gym workout. I went to bed not to late and didn’t set the alarm and woke up at 7.30 am feeling rested. Dressed in my running clothes and after a coffee I went out. My plan was to do 11K but I didn’t know if I could make it because I’ve been so tired lately. But ….
The sun was shining, there was a bit of wind, not to hot, perfect running weather. I didn’t see any people except for some bikers. My legs felt great, my breathing was fine, my pace was a bit faster than I was supposed to run but I felt good.
I decided that I could do 11K today and I did. I walked at 2, 4, 6 and 8K and I felt great until the end. I was 2 minutes faster than the first time I did an 11K.
Weather: sunny, bit of wind, ± 13C/55 degrees.
Distance: 11 K / 6.8 miles
Average time: 6:57 /km
Average speed: 8.6 km/hour
Last song on Ipod before finish: Bruce Springsteen – Badlands
