Nearly didn't make it out today as I was messing about on the computer this morning and it got so close to lunch that my husband decided to go running tomorrow instead. Anyway, I resolutely went out by myself after lunch (not straight after obviously) and all was going fine until a dog walker started shouting something at me. The elderly gentleman carried on talking and once I got to my walking interval, I established that he was actually saying that I was looking better than I did the last time he saw me out!
When I was on my cool down walk, I found out that he had last seen me running with my husband on the day that my knees got really bad so I suppose that it wasn't exactly hard to look better than that today! He carried on telling me that I needed to diet as well as exercise if I wanted to lose weight and that he would expect me to be running even better the next time he bumped into me! As much as I love living in very small town flanked by fields, it is rather hard to do anything unnoticed!
Aside from liaising with opinionated dog walkers, I did find the session today quite arduous. Maybe it was because I had eaten lunch and felt a bit rounded, or maybe it was because I was going a teeny bit faster, but I did get rather desperate for Laura to tell me that it was the end of the running intervals again.
Right, it's a rest day tomorrow then on to Week 2 again. Please hold out knees!
