So reading posts yesterday I was mightily impressed with the hangover runners and feeling that I was being feeble - decided that despite my massive investment in alcohol last night - I would start that B210k programme this morning.
Clearly going back to intervals should be easy - 4 x10 min runs a cinch. First two were fine - legs started to protest a bit on the third run- slowed down. But I was running in a very grumpy mood - not like me- I am a cheery runner - but worked out it was the banging american rock music that sounds like you are a fair ground that was spoiling my karma. Switched it off and went 'naked'- bliss and peace - but alas my legs were definitely complaining. The last 10 mins were like interval training - but still made myself run the 10 mins. Six k completed and 500 calories used up - brill. I ignored the man in the bright yellow vest 15 years my senior - lapping me three times - I hid when I saw him coming around a fourth time.
The best bit of this morning apart from going - was my fab new running trainers - two months ago I bought some very swanky- all form and no function Adidas trainers- they have been awful. A podiatrist did fancy things to them with pads and alterations - but advised Brooks. Yesterday I bit the bullet and bought some Brooks adrenaline's - they were great- didn't think how uncomfortable my feet were once.
So all in all a good days run - I have worked out a new longer running route and I going to try the pyramid running intervals Tues. I will complete B@10k first week fri and sun
Happy running everyone.
