Our baby girl is 18months old TODAY!!!!
Seeing how it's daylight so early these days and Poppy has decided that 5am is wake-up time I decided to get up at 6am and got for a run. I have never actually run this early in the morning and was looking forward to getting it out of the way so early. I did a 5min warm up on the bike and gave my legs a light stretch then took off. I had some trouble finding a spot to actually start the run cos my usual car park was chockers due to a Boot Camp running at Fishies Beach BUGGER!!!!! After driving up & down the esplanade a few times I managed to find a spot to park that would allow me to run in the direction I wanted to and still get 2.5km in each way.
I have not run since last Wednesday but have been trying to keep fitness up & build leg strength on the bike, I had a rest day yesterday though. Todays run didn;t feel too crash hot. I felt un fit and felt like I was PLODDING. The way I have my watch set up I can not tell how long I have been running for in total, only how many mins into a km I am so I had no idea how bad I was actually going but was guessing I would be lucky to make it back to the car in 33mins. I kept hitting the lap button too late and missing the kms so my stats are quite out of whack but here they are.
1st km: Time=6.52.74....Pace=6.22....Dist=1.07
2nd km: Time=5.44.36....Pace=6.00....Dist= .95 (12.37.10)
3rd km: Time=6.23.42....Pace=5.55....Dist= 1.07 (19.00.52)
4th km: Time=5.15.30....Pace=5.48....Dist= .90 (24.15.82)
5th km: Time=5.38.80..................................(29.54.62)
The 5th km is stuffed cos when I got home I was trying to show Hubby my finishing time in the recall setting but accidentally went into the Chrono setting and hit the lap button whick started the timer again, I stupidly did this twice (forehead slap) so my finshing time was actually a couple of seconds faster than that. I managed to loose the stats for that km too.
I put the distance in so you could see why the times were so up the creek. Otherwise Crissy would get a bit excited about the 4th km LOL and wonder what happened in the first LOL.
I can't tell you how shocked I was to see my finishing time. I was in no hurry to check it but caved while I was stretching on the side of the road and let out a little "Whooo hooooooooooo". I think the builders across the road were quite amused.
Anyway so there it is, what felt like a shocker of a run with surprising results. Have to go as I have Poppy booked in to see a doctor AGAIN.
