Fitness review 12 July – Don’t forget to start your watch!

As I was looking at my stats for this week I realised that I have covered 80.79km or 113.05 miles this year.  Who would have thought that?

As I started out on my run this morning I didn’t really have a plan, I wanted to do over 3 miles but apart from that I was flexible to what I did and the route.  I followed my heart and went for a country route, this involved lots of hills, a devil to go up but great fun to run down.  I loved this route!  I had purchased a new pair of Brooks yesterday and this was an excellent way to christen them.

Box fresh Brooks

My Garmin picked up that I did 4.27 miles but it did not pick up the start of my run so I could have been nearer 5 miles how frustrating.  I am determined to crack the golden 5 mile code, then I know I am more than capable of doing a 10k and that race is 12 weeks away!
