Longest run so far - 10k (6.3 mi). Time 75 ½ mins. Pace: 7:33/k (12:04/mi). Actually ran this at a faster pace than the 9.5k on Friday. Had a Gatorade last night before bed as a bonus, and ate a small bowl of pasta and sauce at 9 pm. (maybe this is why I had that little extra bit of energy to keep the pace up - plus a whole Sunday of rest.) Even spent about 1 ½ minutes walking in total during water breaks. I seem to be making progress.
Other questions for my blog friends:
1. Do you have a coach or are thinking of getting one? What led you to getting a coach? Who's your coach, would you recommend them for a wannabe like me? What do you want to achieve through your relationship with your coach? How much does your coach cost?
2. Please hook up your webcam, start it recording, put your mug in front of it and ask me a couple of questions. Load it up on your favorite vlog site (mine is YouTube) and send me a link. I'll answer your questions the best I can. What's the catch? You and I will both try to be funny.
