So I'm on my second week of post grad runs and this morning's was a good one -sunny,with just the right amount of early autumn chill in the air.I'm still running to the W9 podcast and yes Ian, it seems that I can't get enough of "J" after all
Due to the addition of the" bonus track" my husband added (something which when I mentioned it on my grad post seemed to have earned him a bit of a fan club ...LOL ! ) I've been able to increase from 30 to 35 minutes of running with no effort at all as I just LOVE running to that Lissy track It gets me through that last five minutes or so and I'm able to up my pace at the end of the 30 minutes just knowing that its coming up next .
She sounds a bit like Stevie Nicks ,in her heyday, though I have to admit there is a brief moment when I just have to tune her out when she gets dangerously close to sounding more like Bonnie T* so I have to quickly replace that image with Stevie stomping round on stage wearing her fabulous skirts and boots!
So this morning I'm even hollering along to it , scaring the **** out of 'stepdog' and the cows, but hell ...I was having a good time ( though maybe as I had the breath in me to holler I should think about increasing the distance or pace next week !)
Oh and I have a gadget ! Now , I'm not good with gadgets or techno stuff, but I now have an Omron Step Counter ,ordered for me by D( he of the fan club fame ) and I took it out with me this morning ,anxious to know just how far I was covering when I run my regular track. I did read the booklet ( ok, a bit of it) yesterday and thought I had it sussed,but at the end of my run it told me I had done 3.8k ....whaaaat ? or 4.8 k ...hurrah,that's more like it !!!
Am thinking the latter is correct as it ties in with when D mapped it approx with the satnav thingy, but he said he's going to look at the instructions and have a play with it and then write me an 'idiot guide' ( like I have to have for techy TV and DVD players) so that the numpty...yeah, that's me... gets it right next time
Right I'm going to press send...or publish or whatever it is on here now as I got right to this point about half an hour ago and lost the whole damn post ...how did that happen ?
Happy running all x
