Hey everyone hope you are all killing it on your runs. I have been tapering for a 5K time trial just so I can gauge my fitness level and see if I can beat my last years 5k time which was 23.43. This year I am going to do my time trial on a track while last year was a semi flat trail. Since I did not get to do to many races this year I’ll be trying out some short virtual runs to see my progress.
Overall the training has been going well. I did just finish up on my long run yesterday in 15km with 5.09 pace. Felt pretty relaxed I did end up going alittle hard in the beginning and then easing off at the end as I wanted to run on tired legs for the second half of the run. Felt good though, One thing that I did not mention to you guys was I have joined a run club! They are called the North York run club they host runs on Wednesday and Saturday. We actually had a really good hill session on Wednesday where some of the members really pushed me. It is a very humbling experience to be out there with such strong and experienced runners.
I have definitely have a new found love for doing group runs. Doing solo runs has become a bit harder now as I fine them a little lonely. Even if the person I am running with is not talking to me it is still nice to have their presence because I know they are going through the pain with me. Have you guys experienced this feeling? If so any tips for me?
Also, this has never happened to me before so I am very excited to announce that I have won a FREE FITBIT!! after joining a running contest. I did not run the fastest time but it was a random draw if you submitted a run of 5k or more. The group on IG that is hosting this is torontopcoswalk. This has never happened to me so I was extremely excited and I just wanted to share that with you guys.
That is all from me. I hope you are all killing it on the runs and as always, thank you for reading.
Stay happy, Stay healthy, Keep breathing
