What could be nicer than a British summers morning with the sun twinkling in the sky and the birds singing their latest albums in the trees? Not much I'd say. As I am now employed for a few months, my running routine has switched from "Lazy Late Morning" to "F***ing Early Morning" and so far I've kept up with MyAsics Plan that I'm doing for my Half Marathon in October. This week saw two 8K runs along my usual river route - the first one was good, the second one unbelievably hard, but I managed them OK which is the main thing. Tomorrow is a 12K "comfortable" and I'm about to work out a nice route using that website thingy....what's it called......er.......MapMyRun! That's it.
My health is still recovering from my hideous chest infection and I'm about 80% fit I'd say. I can definitely still feel a weakness in my chest and still can't laugh heartily (like I used to do a lot). Whenever I attempt to really laugh my head off I end up collapsing in a coughing heap! At least though my fitness levels are good enough to do my running and that's all that counts for me baby.
So to all those lovely peeps running long ones and short ones tomorrow (Sunday), allow me to wish you Godspeed and don't forget to stretch afterwards. So important.
MyAsics Plan has another two weeks worth of 8k /8K / 12K before an almost mammoth 16K which will be my longest ever run. I've already lined up my "Pace Beeatch" to make sure there's someone there to call paramedics when I break down in a heap. I'm sure I'll be fine!
Until we meet again on this forum that we call the .....er....... forum!
