I did it!!! Fastest 5k recorded to date. I have done faster at the gym on a trendmill (22 minutes & 30 seconds), but its not the same as outside you have loads of other factors to consider. I'm very proud of myself as I beat my previous record by 34 seconds and the thing is I wasn't going for a calm one today, but after hearing the app saying I was at 3k on the 15th minute and thus maintaining a 5 minute per kilometre target I decided to up my game. It paid off! It only goes to show that patience and persistence pays. I hope within time I can set a PB outside that matches my PB on a trendmill. Baby steps first.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
