Yesterday, I reported to work after a few hours of sleep. Luckily, we had absolutely nothing to do but meet and greet returning colleagues. (I wish running was as easy as my job.)
Anyhow, I went for my first run this morning since returning to Oman and I finally managed to cover 5K without a walking break in a time of 36 minutes. The Couch-to-5k plan may prepare some people to run 5K in 30 minutes but not everyone. It takes some people a little longer or maybe a lot longer, to cover the distance in 30 minutes. I will eventually get there even if it takes me a year!
On a positive note, I didn’t push myself and just went out for a relaxing run to get back into running in the desert heat. So, I am optimistic this time can be improved on over the next few weeks.
