Scared of my run

Fredrik_Stattin_Runners_VoiceActually I was really frightened of my idea today. My brain wanted to run a test race, to see at what level I am on. But my body was not as sure as my brain. Under the last year I have not focus on running, it has been on my work. So, now when I want to get in shape the best way to do it is to do a test race.
I have a really nice trail near to my house outside Stockholm, Sweden. So I ran it, 3,7 K at 18:56 min. A pace 5’02 min/Km. I’m not a fast runner, my PB on half marathon is 1h 45min, but I feel confident with this time. If I use McMillan Running Calculator it says that I would run 10K on 53 min.
I did not thing I was in this good shape, so now I am full of energy to train on a 10K program. Aiming for a race this spring.

I always feel great after a run, even after a bad one, but to day it was a great one!
