Early Morning Jog

It’s been a few days since my last outing following the excruciating pain in my back, and I think the break has done me the world of good.

For this run, it was a 3am start, prior to heading into work – have I said I was keen, or nuts, or both? 🤣

This morning, I took a circular route from, and back to my home. I felt really good, and thought I could have run further – but I ran out of road. Wow!

An added bonus this morning was seeing my sons face when he returned from a night on the tiles 😂

So. For the very first time, I’ve managed to reach the 2km mark, for which I’m extremely pleased. In all my wildest dreams, I never thought I would reach this point. If you knew my history, you’d totally understand where I’m coming from.

Latest observation:

  • Distance: 1.3 mile
  • Speed: 4.9 mph
  • Heart Rate: 167
  • Pace: 12.14 min/mile

You may have noticed that I’ve begun to record pace, rather than time. It’s a much better indicator of how I’m progressing, especially when compared to my original pace, which was 13.13 min/mile.

Now, I’ll grab some breakfast, before I head in to work, for a 12 hour shift 🥣
