I started to push boundaries a little in terms of distance which was almost a surprise to myself considering I had no plans of ever going beyond 3km at the start of the week.
Looking back on the week, it was a concoction of mixed distances, varying paces and little rest between runs.
One thing in hindsight that was becoming apparent was that I had no plan and no goal.
I mapped five runs in just four days for a total of 15.7km. It was way too much, too soon, but I was enjoying it and did not know any better.

The worst run (which is the one pictured) was the first little pointer to me that I needed both a training plan and to space my runs a little more.
It was 4.5km and I gradually got slower and slower. It was clear that I was also still having a lot of trouble pacing myself and this run was probably the one that made me really start to think about that.
I began to peruse as much literature as I could find on running in general. If I was going to keep this up, I had lots to learn.
