Happy smiley running people

Amazing what a little positive self-talk can do. Got back from lunch and as planned slung on my running gear and went out in the drizzle. Feeling slow and sluggish after eating and probably running a little too soon too. I started talking myself up somewhere just after the half-way point - telling myself I could keep going. Slowly, slowly I sped up and got stronger and ended up storming the last part with a smile.

Last Friday I wrote that I'd clocked my fastest 5k to date - 5.1k in 40 mins.

Today I ran the same route in 38 mins.

Proof of my happy (sweaty) face.

Positive self-talk is soooooo important.
