Thank you Hackney Marshes Park Run! 🏃🏽♀️✅ After a wine and nacho evening with @vicpott
I woke with the intention of a 'casual park run' for the first time. En route I spotted Dave from #ProjectAwesome
🚴🏼♀️ and we made our way to the start.
A 'there and back' route, flat, gravel. I set off relaxed pace, trying to read all the wonderful variety of running tops (lol), not even caring about time. Only when I got to the final KM, my app signalled to me the pace- whaaat? With lots of energy and a quick sprint finish I looked down 😲 unintentionally after months of trying- the one week I go out for a casual run I make it into the 21 minute category 🎉
Note to self: Negative splits and pacing definitely works. Well done Dave for his best run too, coming second!
