Out The Way Early

Well that's today's training done. Another twenty one minute Park Run. I've run it four times and on three occasions ran bang on twenty one minutes - although today's might possibly be rounded up by a second. I might be slow but at least I'm consistent with it!

I'm actually quite happy with the time. I thought I would be slower. The one thing it does emphasise is the fact that if I want to speed up there's no option but to do some training! The thing is though, I enjoy racing but I don't really care about the times any more. For me it's about enjoying the heat of battle not whether I win or lose. That said, I really think I should try and factor in some proper training for the sake of my dignity. Twenty one minutes for 5k, albeit a twisty, boggy 5k, is diabolical when you consider a few years back I could nudge close to eighteen. I know I'm a little older but come on, it's disgraceful.
