On Thursday night I went for an easy run after work. I had been on my feet all day at my cross country event so was quite pleased with how my legs felt.
This morning I was up and out by 6.45am for my Saturday longer run. I decided on a different route this morning compared to the last few Saturday runs.
I’m trying not to look at my watch at all on these Saturday runs and running as fast (or slow) as I feel I can maintain for the 10miles. I looked at my watch at 8miles and was quite happy to see I was averaging 7.42 pace. I must have slowed a bit over the last two and a bit miles as I averaged 7:45 overall but again happy with that.
Our big family news is we are going to be grandparents for the first time! Our daughter Emma and her husband Yonas are expecting in May 2015. They live in Malang, Indonesia but we were planning to visit next summer so the timing is great for us.
Emma finally put the good news on Facebook which meant I could as well. So far I have 236 likes and 42 comments which shows people like a bit of good news!
