This was my first run after my 5k post graduation run, i then tripped over and shredded my knee the very next day so no running for a couple of weeks! Could not face the flooded paths that get me to my favourite bit of of kent coastline so drove down the coast a bit so i could run towards home, then away again! Thank god the car was waiting!
Had done a bit of research on the gpmapometer website which i do rate, but didn't study well enough! I actually sprinted the last 100 meters just to see if i could (blimey, i could you know, now that is a shock!) but had i known i was half a km short i would have kept going.
Never thought I would have a gait analysis, buy proper running shoes, a shock absorber bra for 30 quid! Lycra clothes (i did, all of them) but now a garmin? i think i might be hooked, still 3 stone over, slow as hell, but yes definitely hooked!
