On 10th May I wrote in my blog about the "odd distance tempo" that I use...3.94 miles. I recorded my best time of 22.03 then and five days later ran a very pleasing Half Marathon in Chester! Job well done...
I seem to have stepped up a gear since then and have concentrated on some shorter distance stuff.
Tonight I smashed the "odd distance tempo" with a very controlled 21:25..average of 5-26 miling.
Am I on the verge of something good! Running 5km on track on Sunday as a decent training run - the longer term aim is the Great North 10km in Gateshead on July 17th....got my number today...happy to be classified by NOVA as a "fast club runner" but even happier with the personalised number....classy!
