08-Jun-13 Big sprint finish!

In Blog, Personal, Sports on June 8, 2013 at 12:48 pm

So today, I did my first 5km park run since December. The next step of my training regime to build up my stamina for the JP Morgan chase in July.

With the continued good weather we are experiencing at the moment, it was great to get up and about for the 9am run at Nonsuch Park, which was a lot busier than the previous runs I have done in the winter months.

Today was all about a steady pace and I was keen to ensure that I did not push myself too hard, like the last time I ran, when I did a personal best.

After a steady start, I started upping the speed, and as can be seen from my Nikeplus graph below, I kept stepping up the speed throughout my run, which I was really pleased with.

By the way. I did run 5km. My device needs collaborating, hence 5.4km on this!

I even had breathe for a big sprint finish. Well almost (I could not catch a little boy in the last 10 yard dash)!

I’m pleased to say that my official time, according to the park run organisers was 28 mins and 23 seconds (25 seconds slower than my personal best) finishing in 213 place out of 335. Pleased with that considering my first proper week of training is completed.
