This morning I set off early with every intention of running for 5 miles. As it turned out, I ended up running 2 miles more; 7 miles in total! According to my Runkeeper stats, this is the furthest I’ve ever run. Pretty chuffed about that!!
It was a little tough as I wanted a sub-10 minute mile pace and for the first half, I was achieving this. However, I lost momentum a bit in the middle of the run and struggled to keep up the pace. Fortunately, for the last mile or so, I dug a little deeper and managed to improve the pace again.
Overall pace slightly over 10 mins per mile. Pleased with that given the distance.
