Why: Need a baseline to work from
Last hard: Just now
Last rest: Mon
Been very much down in the doldrums since Geneva Half, things have been getting on top of me. But got a great boost this morning. One mile in 6'04".
In Dec I set myself a goal of a sub-20 5k. In March it still looked a mile (!) off, I tried 5k and did 24'17". Mission Impossible.
To even get this far is amazing, I just need to take 24 seconds off my mile time in 6 weeks and I have done it. I've got th ekick (I went through half mile in 2:50), I just need the wind.
Feeling bit emotional now. My internal voice has gone from "Give it up, son, it's bad job. You've no chance, you must be a fool to believe you had" to "COME ON! GET IN THERE! YOU CAN DO THIS!"
It's put a smile on my face
