Windy out there today

Glad I went back for my gloves 'tho. Cursed that wind on the way out, but it pushed me home to another PB - 34 something. Almost, although I'm not going to admit it yet, but almost, began to feel a bit easier today in parts. I like this 'cycle' motion with the feet that Laura talks about - feels good and so much better. I start off like a waddling penguin (old_git springs to mind - no, not you, your logo!) but finish more like a proper runner. Bril.

Brilliant, Buffy, you're on a roll! I've been trying that cycle motion too, but my husband saw me running for the first time the other day and said I have more of a low shuffle. Yes, thanks a lot!! Not quite what I was aiming for!

the Stamina one - I have listened to it twice and missed her saying it the first time. Its only these last few runs that I've felt able to think about my technique - up 'til now its all been about just getting to the end. I even enjoy doing a mini sprint at the end now.

Great stuff Buffy, you're really coming on a storm at the moment :)

Yes, can't believe it - can't keep improving at this pace. But as long as I'm maintaining it , that's all that matters to me. Almost beginning to enjoy it now at last and certainly this morning I wasn't anywhere near as sweaty a blob as I have been in the past - my shades still misted up 'tho!

Well done Buffy! It was very windy out there today - like one of those swimming machines where you swim and swim and get absolutely nowhere!

Never seems quite as strong at your back though 😃

Know exactly what you mean - and so icy cold still despite the sunshine and glorious skies.
