I've had my first two days at work, I'm really loving it so far, there's some real characters! I'm going to keep this post pretty short as I'm almost asleep - up since 5.30 eeeesh - and that left me rushing... 5.15 wakeup call tomorrow! I could get up later but that would mean missing Roxie's walk and I don't want to do that!
I didn't do my planned 10 miles yesterday. I didn't realise I couldn't leave the work premises on my break and as I was planning to go home for lunch didn't eat any :-( There wasn't anything there I would have eaten. I have never been happier to find a nakd bar lurking in the depths of my bag, even my least favourite flavour nakd bar hehe but it wasn't enough fuel for 10 miles.
I planned my food a bit better today but I still didn't take enough, guess I'll figure it out soon enough! I did my tempo run when I got home today. I decided to cut the warm up and cool down miles as I was really hungry before I set out and just wanted to get it done so I could get home and have my tea! Maybe that's why I ran so fast!
I was scheduled to do 4 miles at short tempo pace which is 8.17, here are my splits
Mile 1 - 8.26
Mile 2 - 8.10
Mile 3 - 8.21
Mile 4 - 7.51
Overall 4 miles in 32.48 average pace 8.12 yipeeeee that's almost a minute off my previous fastest 4 mile time!
Well I'm going to get off and read a few more blogs before bed, which I think will be calling my name reeeally soon haha.. Hope everyone's had a good day :-)
A lovely week in the north- part 1
