Today was speed podcast day on the trotmill. I struggled with the Stepping Stones podcast where I can only assume I must have been attempting to land every other beat instead of stepping twice as fast to the proper beat. Imagine, if you will, John Cleese doing his silly walk, the one where he does a poor imitation of Lady Penelope from Thunderbirds, in slo-mo, to music, without the bowler hat and wearing a very confused look in an alarming shade. Will try this one again when I have rounded up my nerve.
But the speed podcast was entirely different for me. Here Laura counts just about every stride as you go along so even the less rhythmic among me can get the gist - what a girl!
Interval 1: WHEEEEEEEEEEE this is fun. Hey look at me I'm running quick. The trot mill is a Bugatti.
Interval 2: WHEEEEE still fun, I can keep up this quick stuff for just 1.5 mins.
Interval 3: Yep, still enjoying this. I can do this. I know I can do this.
Interval 4: Am I still enjoying this?
Interval 5: Blimmin eck, dripping and gone a very nasty puce shade.
Interval 6: NOOOOOO, no more. Please NO MORE. Going to trade Bugatti trot mill in for Robin Reliant.
Then it was over and I am as glad as a very glad thing with a 'normus grin.
Managed to cover a measly 2.8k in 17.14 mins but I know it was hard because of the drippy:puce ratio.
Isn't running fun
