I did a run after work today with a friend from work and got a new personal best! Of course it's not 100% accurate, I mapped the route on walkjogrun.net and timed the run on my wristwatch, but we did 3 miles in 26mins 43sec. Round it up to 27 mins and that's a very respectable 9 minute miles!
And the best bit? We had to slow down a bit on the last mile because my mate was starting to struggle... I could have carried on so could have been a tiny bit quicker still!! (Not much mind, it wouldn't have made a huge difference.)
I also bought some new kit and wore it today. It's comfortable, but I'm not convinced I feel 100% happy dressed in lycra... I'm pretty self concious!!
