Just did a hilly 5K in 30 degree heat. I was happy enough to a. survive and b. average 5.07 per K.

Christ!  I went out last night when I thought it was a bit cooler at 9pm.  After 1K I decided I was content if I just got home still alive and totally didn't bother with times!

That's a pretty superhuman time in this heat.

Gah, thought I was going to do a sub 28 min 5K last night, but it came in at 28:02, mainly because I was faffing around with my phone a bit!   Somehow missing it by a small amount is much worse than missing it by miles.  Still a PB is OK though I suppose, and I've broken the point where I'm now comfortably under 30 min every time rather than feeling like I'm going to die doing it.

Top work. Annoying to miss your target, but a PB and you know you can beat it.

Great effort Martin, well done. Next time don't take you phone,

Have you not got an arm sleeve to keep it in so you don't get distracted? Alternatively buy a decent running watch with GPS and ability to play music and some bluetooth ear pods? I swapped to this about 2 months ago and whilst I have the ability to listen to music Ive stopped and am just alone with my thoughts or when my watch bleeps at me to run faster!!!

I run to the end of our lane that goes out of our village, and back again, as it's pretty much exactly 5K.  I don't like to wear headphones or earpods as it's very narrow in places and I like to be able to hear cars coming.  I have got an arm holder, but don't like it very much as I find them a bit of a distraction . 


I bought run of these https://freetrain.co.uk it's basically a vest with a phone holder in the chest position, that you can access quite easily.  I thought it was great at first, but have become a bit less enamoured with it of late.  When it gets a bit sweaty and it rubs against your chest, it can make your music skip etc.  And the popper to undo the phone holder is really fiddly while you're running.  It's good for just playing music without headphones on though, using the external speaker.  I'm too boring to listen to my own thoughts for 30 minutes!
