Running Log – Valentine’s Day Run

Posted on February 14, 2010


It is Valentine’s Day but there’s nothing romantic about today’s run. Don’t think running can be romantic, really. In fact, it was hard work and lots of sweat.

Did a 8 x 630m. Averaging 2:43. Not too fast but faster. That’s around 4:31 min/km pace. I’ll try harder next week. I’m aiming for sub-50 min for the 10km race at the end of this month.

I know I can go faster because I did a 2:04 for the first run. Of course, I couldn’t sustain that pace for the rest of the runs. But it showed that I can go faster. I just need to do more intervals and tempo runs.

In today’s runs, I was comfortable in the first 400m but struggled to stay on in the last 200m. With more training, I am sure I’ll improve.

Total distance ran: 5 km or 3.1 miles
