Day # -81 8K

8K milestone

Last night, I covered a distance of about 8.2km, running for 80 minutes straight with two 1.5 minute breaks. At the end of it, I was still feeling fresh, with no noticeable ache in knees, ankles or legs, which looks like a good sign. But since this was inside the cosy confines of a gym, I am not sure how that would translate to the real world.

I can check that tonight. I’m going to run 5K with a group, in a weekly event organised by the Running Room. They say that a marathon must be run at a speed which at which one can have a comfortable conversation with fellow runners. But does that mean I should actually be conversing with fellow runners? Interesting, I will know that tonight.
