This is just a post for me with lots of numbers in (and a caterpillar). I say I don’t care how fast I run, but I’m not sure it’s quite true. 🙂
I completed the NHS couch to 5k programme six months ago today, so to celebrate, I decided I should re-run the same route.
On February 13th, I ran 2.58 miles (4.15k) at 15:30 min/mile. I ran for forty minutes – I did an extra ten minutes to prove to myself that I didn’t need to stop at thirty.
Today I ran for thirty minutes (my knee was beginning to complain, so I didn’t carry on past 30), 2.24 miles, at 13:25 min/mile. Not quite as fast as I managed in the middle of the 5×50 challenge in May (a parkrun at 13:21) but good enough to make me feel I am making progress.
Slow and steady. 🙂
Finished painting two windows today too, and found this strange caterpillar while sweeping up the car-parking space. I think it’s probably a hawk-moth of some sort. Amazing turquoise colour.
