Decided to try my 5K route again today — first time in a long while and I knew I wouldn’t be able to last it (haven’t run consistently for a long time), I made it 3.3K around the lap and then walked the rest of the way.
Spotify’s running playlist helps, but it doesn’t work in the same way as their old Running Mode used to, which I really miss…. :-(
My pace times were 6:15, 5:39, and 5:21. First 1km was slow for two reasons — first to build up the speed slowly, and second, it was an uphill slog. Second k was fairly flat, and the 3rd k was downhill, but tried to keep the pace.
