I know I know. You're supposed to have a days rest in between runs, but I thought I'd try out this 5K+ Speed podcast. It was kind of nice to hear Laura again as I hadn't heard her in a number of weeks since graduating, so off I went into the afternoon sunshine.
I hadn't realised how many people would be out on Sunday afternoon strolls! I had quite a few near misses and nifty swerves to execute along the way on my way into Richmond along the river and then back out on the other side, but managed to avoid collisions with folk.
I have to admit to walking for ONE of the six intervals because it IS quite a tough program - running at 150bpm then upping it to 165bpm for ONE minute then back to 150 for one minute - you do this six times. I was pooped after the fourth interval and just had to get myself together by walking.
Not sure whether I felt I'd achieved anything really as I really don't know what I'm looking for to be honest. I would dearly love to get back that HUGE feeling of wellbeing I used to get after completing each run of the C25K prog, but each "post run" feeling is more of a balanced "Well at least I did it" kind of feeling.
Definitely having a couple of days off now though!! My 50 year old legs need a bit of "Leg Time" to recover.
Right! Off to eat a horse. I'm starving!
