Today’s workout

I slept in ridiculously late today, knowing full well it was ‘long run’ day. Alas, when I finally dragged myself out of bed it proved to be a wonderful day to get outdoors and do some running. Here in Scotland sunny weather is unusual so I was pleased to see some of it on my day off. I’ve started doing the 5:2 diet recently, which I’m still getting used to. You can read more about running on a fast day here.
Today wasn’t a fast day however, so I stuck to my half marathon training plan and aimed for 5 miles. The first few miles were slow but I was more concerned about completing the mileage than breaking any speed records.

Amazingly once I finished and consulted my handy Nike running app, I learned I had recorded my fastest ever mile! It seems that the worse I feel the harder I work without realising it. I’m looking forward to seeing more improvements next week!

What was your workout today?

  1. Good for you! Sometimes you achieve speed when you’re not focused on it. Congrats on your best mile! I’ve got a rest day today, so I’ll be taking it easy this afternoon.
