...'cause I'm kind of, ever so gently, off the injury couch! Yeaaah!!
It was a lovely sun-shiny morning, the woods were calling, my thigh was feeling good to go after 10 days rest & TLC and I was bursting to get out.
I've read lots & watched several videos since my last run (blimey..I'm a woman obsessed) - I've been looking at the Galloway run/walk/run method (joined the facebook group too) & thought I'd give something like that a go...so set up runkeeper to 8x 1min run & 8x 1min walk intervals, with 5min warm up & cool down & set off on my trail at a much gentler pace than I had been doing during c25k.
Some of my 1 min runs had decent inclines (ups & downs), but I took it all steady & loved it...I even tried a bit of Gina's 'prancing pony', which worked well, I thought! (Thanks for posting that, Gina)
There's a bit of an ache, but I excpected that, but I'll be sticking to this much gentler approach from now on & slowly build up time & pace...most of all, though, I'll just enjoy going a little further, a little faster...today I am a happy snail!!
