First Run of 35

I guess this is my running blog now? I don’t know but this is happening.

It was my birthday on Tuesday, so this is my first run as a 35-year-old. It’s not my regular day either, I had to bump it up by a day because I’m busy tomorrow.

So here we are, and I found this run IMPOSSIBLY difficult. I have been pushing my pace quite a lot, trying to improve my speed. As you can see I’m a full six minutes faster than last week. But as you can also see I had to stop twice (total run time) to get my breath and re-hydrate, so I was pushing the pace too hard, I think. I’ll need to start ramping my time up more slowly.

So yeah, that’s my 10K this week. And maybe I’ll find some things to post that aren’t about running soon.
