Was back out there this morning wearing gloves this time and thanks to all the advice from other forum people answering my question about inhaling cold air, I wore my motorcycle neck tube pulled up over my North and South! Worked a treat and eventually had to abandon said facial covering cos I got too hot!
Laura kept me company the whole way. I am using Week 7 at the moment to get back into my stride and I must say, Laura's little comments every so often don;t half keep me going. I am sure if I hadn't had her in my ears I might have stopped for a walk / rest at one point, but knowing that you've run 5 minutes, then told about the half way point, then told about the last minute to go really helped me. I was faster as well today compared to Monday just gone, so there is some improvement happening. Hurrah!!
Also I'm finding that my glutes stretches before I go out seem to help me. Dunno why, but the physio said that if I did them before I went out then it'd send a signal to my brain to use them for the POWER aspect -ie projecting myself forward, instead of just using my calves to do the same thing, which is what I had been doing. Oddly this morning when I returned home, my arse muscles were reeeeeeally quite sore!! So they must have been working out!
Right back to work I go on my dog film. it's a gas.
