Well, where do I start. I haven't run much in the last couple of weeks (3 runs in 2 weeks) but I am back on track now. So yesterday I found Zombies, Run! and thought it would be fun. I had intended to go out for a Speed podcast so I set the Zombie, Run! going on my warm up walk. It started well and the audio was fun. I started running and according to the app I was running through a hospital (really running the Coastal Path). It's from there it went down hill . I started the intervals and when the aps kicks in with a piece of audio it pauses your music (speed podcast). It seems to time itself so it kicked in when I was running the faster intervals, so I ended up doing nearly 2 min fast intervals to 1 minute slow ones . I thought it will be good for training though so stuck with it. I go through a wooded area and this is where on the app I left "the hospital" and the Zombies were running after me through the woods towards the base. They were close behind me and I had to run faster - Kick in another fast interval (very well timed). I then turned the corner and coming towards me was a family with a poodle. I raised my hands so the dog wouldn't jump up and carried on. I had my headphones in and the zombies were chasing me so I was totally oblivious to what was going on behind me . It was at the point where the guy on the app in a very panicked voice said " They are right behind you" that the poodle decided to come back to me and jump up my back. Not good, I thought the Zombies were getting me . I then run past 2 police officers who asked if I was ok. I think at this point I must have looked scared. The voice on the app told me the Zombies were everywhere and not to trust anyone. "Don't Look Behind You" was his advice. (strangely last night my route was more populated than usual) I had to run towards the gates before the gates closed (on the app) and I was actually running towards gate in real life so it made it a little bit surreal. I sped up towards the real gates and I approached them a little flustered with all the "excitement" of the zombies. Just then the gate opened and a dog run through towards me. I think I must have screamed and the Walker (A guy I see all the time and lives just around the corner from me) apologised for scaring me . I couldn't tell him it wasn't him it was the zombies
All in all a good run and the zombies made it a little bit different.
