Slightly longer run today in order to avoid shouty builders. 4.32 miles in 41 minutes 53 seconds. That's a 9.41 minute mile - an improvement of 14 secs per mile on yesterday. Which could mean I'm getting fitter. Or could mean that I didn't have to stop for traffic as often. Either way, I'll take it.
Today, the first 9 minutes were painful, followed by a short period of easy running, followed by interchanging minutes of smooth running and wheezing. Discovered that Don't Go by Yazoo is a good song for regulating my stride and breathing. I imagine that's what they were aiming for when they wrote it.
