Early bird catches the worm

This morning I managed to drag myself out of bed early again so that I could fit in a decent run before commuting to London.

So by 5am this morning I was running on the treadmill. My aim was to run a steady 5 mile run but as I started the run I knew it wouldn't be plain sailing. I felt tired (not surprising I suppose given that it was so early!) but I also couldn't get into a rhythm, my breathing seemed heavy. Anyway, after about 20 minutes things sorted themselves out the run turned into a more enjoyable experience. I also added in a few walk breaks (4 minutes running to 1 minute walking) like I did during my long run last Sunday and this really helped me again.
