I LOVE this pace … 1 kilometer at 4:30/km!! I love running 4Ks at it, 8Ks when my body feels it, I’ve even kept the speed for 10K. NOW, if only I were able to run four consecutive 10Ks maintaining that pace (plus tacking on ten minutes for the extra 2.2 kilometers), then I’d be onto something! For the time being, dancandream, eh?
… ’cause twelve’s a beautiful number!
Today was a great day for running, all that humidity we had lingering lifted … nothing but sunshine, and a cool breeze to enjoy my early morning run. Was perfect. After two kilometers, I knew I wasn’t on any sort of record pace, so I settled into a comfortable run … it was then I knew I wanted to challenge myself for distance, and I thought 12K would be easy enough. And it was, I maintained a consistent pace (as you can see from my splits), and I was very happy with my time – a 57:43 clocking. And check out the calories burned – 960 … yeah, I’ll take that. Nice way to start the day!
