Having said my final farewells to the lovely Laura, I needed someone new in my running life, so I splashed out on Audiofuel, 'The first hour'. Here is the lowdown:
1.My new 'coach' is nice, I have named him 'silky steve',he says things like, 'smooth, easy running'.....as if!! I haven't sworn at him yet so thats good.
2. Every ten minutes this lady with a very sexy Bond girl voice says 'ten minutes complete, 50 minutes complete' etc. I think I like her but she never gets more enthusiastic as time goes on.
3. The music is great and keeps me going. Silky steve says even marathon runners take walking breaks so I did as he instructed after ha;f an hour and then managed to do the hour. I'm liking silky steve.
4. Silky steve also informed me that its only after 1.5 hours that the body starts to burn fat....W** I never knew that before, so I have a long way to go before getting in control of my bod!
5. Silky steve is coming with me to the Parkrun today, I am not looking forward to the big climb, and I think my running will be nothing but 'smooth or easy' but perhaps silky steve will get me there!
Good luck for all of you doing parkruns today, and if you are going to Long Ashton come and say hi to me and leon ( and silky steve!!).I will be wearing my orange sweatband!
