Trying to Stick to the Plan!

I ran at 5.15pm today when the conditions were perfect - cool, overcast and the sun setting in an orange glow in the distance. It was lovely. I turned up my music and just ran. I just couldn't hang off a minute longer. The schedule was to run for 40mins with the last 10mins at marathon pace and that's exactly what I did!
I ran from home for 20mins then turned and ran back again to make my total of 40mins.
Total distance: 6:76km! (not like me to not round it up but I religiously stuck to the 40mins)
Average pace per km: 5:55 (with last 10mins averaging 5:38per km)
Calories burned: 400
Tomorrow, as I have a few appointments, I will have the rest day from running that I didn't have on Monday! Why is it that I always want to run more when I'm tapering? I'm also hungry and have to stop myself from nibbling at that chocolate!


  1. Naughty girl! Put that chocolate down!

    Looks like a 3 hour 57 minute marathon coming up :)


    P.S. how funny is this... word verification is "binge"!

  2. Good to see you're on track for Sunday. We'll be there cheering so I'll make sure we save up a big cheer for your finish!
