Well, i've been out on my 1st post graduation run!!
Today has been not all that exciting, i've had only the customers to keep me company(no work colleague today), the highlight of the day was sitting out on the decking for lunch(hooray!) and sharing a piece of date and walnut cake with my friend Clair So after a annoying drive home(tractors, people not indicating, reversing without warning!) i was not in the most positive mood But should i go out as planned? Of course said my partner(he'd cycled to work and back and was just off to badminton.............
So to the echo of me"don't be disappointed if theres nothing nice for tea" we both set off in our respective cars...
Went to my new favourite route along the prom seafront, decided to start the garmin when i started running rather than include walk, to see how far the run amounted to! The wind was in my face, but i was trying out my "rockmyrun" download that i'd only used twice before and set off.... great tunes!! did a bit of a sing along when there were no passers by! quite liberating! Only a few dog walkers and joggers out tonight -legs were a bit sore on my calves (they usually are) and also i had forgotten to do any stretches Got to the pier which is my halfway point and swung round my marker pole to the tune"I will survive" very apt!! How lovely the wind was behind me now heading back to the car, the seafront looked very pretty all lit up(must take a pic next time!) Nearly there... pulled down vest over bum as people approaching and threw my mp3 on the pavement so had to stop for a second on the last bit humbug! But soon got going again and got right to the end of prom! looked at watch 30.12 mins running-YEY! only 4.34 k but my av per km was only 2 secs off Saturdays graduation run!
Returned in much better mood and have now managed to make a half decent dinner, a relief all round!
So my 2nd minus Laura run was ok after all!!! I'm going to try some post c25k stepping stone runs at end of week tho!
Happy running everyone!!!!!!!!!!
