BUT...even with all of that going wrong I still managed to pull out a 5k run in 41:17 which is a whole 1:08 faster than Sunday's run!!!! Don't ask me how because I have no idea but it happened. My average mile time was 13:28 slower than before but way better than the 14:02 average mile time for last week. This run also fulfills yet another virtual race 5k. This month I had to complete 2 virtual races distance of my choosing and well I guess I chose the 5k.
About the run itself. It was not mu strongest run but it felt better than Sunday's run. My legs right now just feel heavy every run so I am getting use to it. I believe some of that is walking to much and then trying to run on them before they recover and not consuming enough water/hydrating liquids. But all in all I am happy with what I accomplished this morning and if you subtract 2min from the final time for traffic lights (which I wont do) it is a better time though traffic lights are part of the game I guess.
I believe my goal for the rest of my time in London is to keep at the 5k distance and work on getting faster again. Reconditioning my body to take in oxygen the way it is suppose to, teach myself how to breather through the miles, and to get my body back into running shape. I also will be and have been doing this:
Lastly Kyle training for ironman means that I have to get my act together and start training. Because lets be honest he can not look better in a swim suit on the beach than I do! Project Miami here we come!
