This first workout isn't very much of a jump up from Week 4, which is good because Week 4 was still a bit on the edge of what I can manage. First two five-minute runs at pace (7.5 kph), then the third run at 7 kph. I actually got a stitch somewhere in the middle of the second run; I was able to keep going through it, but of course it got more painful during the recovery section, which made it hard to get going again in the final run. Hence the slower pace.

In a lot of ways I'm quite pleased, because this is almost the first time in my life that my lungs have been able to power me to run enough to get a stitch! I've found something else to limit me apart from my rubbish lungs, which suggests that my fitness is genuinely improving.

Total was 2.9 km in 26 minutes, so still pretty much dead on 9 min / km overall.

Yay for changes in limits! I haven't had a stitch since before falling down the stairs in 2006 (I don't seem to get them cycling), I don't think, which says something about the amount and type of exercise I've been doing since then.
