I got the news this week that my ferritin has come up a little so I went out today being able to up the interval times. Things are so busy at the moment I decided to run near home, usually I go down to the park and have a long walk home through the woods. I haven't run near home since the wk5 run 3, fail ages ago.
My brain still seems to remember, even before I set off it was saying you can't do this. Any way I pushed forward and did two intervals one of 10 min and one of 8 min. My legs were feeling really strange as I was running in a treadmill on Monday. I did a full 20 min on the treadmill. Does anyone know if that uses slightly different muscles? They eased up a bit and I stretched them afterwards.
Also my music packed up so for the the first time I was running naked. I am undecided about it. But I have a feeling running without music makes you run a bit more steady. I think I will have to go out for a purposeful naked run.
All in all I have come home with the feeling I have learnt something about running me.
1. My brain is not always right
2. I should try naked runs more often
3. I think I need to get tougher with myself. Now I can push
Myself, I must.
