I made a revelation today. I managed to run my standard route (just over 4 miles, 53.27) and actually found a comfortable pace. Instead of listneing to music, which means I alter my speed according to the song (without realizing) I listened to a podcast. I was suitable distracted and managed to slip into an easy pace which I could keep up. PLUS I didn't stop or walk once.
My best mate Sal arrives on Friday afternoon and our run is on Saturday - go us! It won't be the fastest 10k for me, but I will run all the way!
Multitasking indeed - stimulation for mind and body!
