Went out for my usual Tuesday evening 10 mile run tonight. Conditions were good. Not too cold, very little wind and dry. From the outset I felt pretty good and tried to get a good, fast pace going and thought I'd see how long I could last for. In the end I managed to keep it going throughout my 10 mile route. I was hoping to break 1:25 for the first time. My quickest time had been 1:25:07, which although I was really pleased with, I must admit I was a little gutted to miss breaking 1:25 by 7 seconds. Anyway, tonight I smashed that by over 2 and a half minutes! I did a definite double take when I looked at my watch and saw 1:22:28. I'm so chuffed with that. I even wondered if my watch had turned off for a little while part way round but it displayed the correct distance as well so I must have done it!
Next Monday I'm going to start my training plan. It will certainly be a lot different to what I'm used to doing but I'm looking forward to it and hopefully it will help me achieve my goal of breaking 4 hours for the marathon this time.
Happy Running Everyone!
