Yesterday I posted that I had lost all my enthusiasm. I think it was a combination of the heat, being on leave for a few days in a beautiful cathedral city (Lincoln) and getting scared about doing the Colour Run on the 16th. I had set up the Nike+ Coach app on my phone and didn't seem to be able to keep up with the number of runs it was asking for.
The responses from the Forum encouraged me to get out of bed earlier this morning (I usually run later on Sundays), and decided to take Laura for a run down the canal, listening to W1R1.
I really enjoyed it. Actually heard the music this time because the first time I did W1R1 I was concentrating on getting to the end of the 60 seconds each time, rather than listening to the music :-).
I met a number of Canadian geese, moor hens, blackbirds and a heron. Here are the geese heading towards Birmingham as I say goodbye.
I think I will do W2R1 on Tuesday and revert to my own running scheme on Thursday, and ditch the Nike+ Coach. I have done two 5Ks (a parkrun and the RFL) so I am sure I can do the Colour Run in my own time without trying to achieve a PB.
