So I'm back with a new training plan courtesy of endomondo which I quite like really as it chirrups in your ear what to do and I've never really got over loosing Laura. Thing is I may have been a bit over enthusiastic with my input stats as tonight's run called for 400m of 5.04min/ km. Anyway first the run- I headed out the door about 8pm once the wee fella had been put to bed and I had my game face on as I feel a whole heap of motivation tonight. The rain was plumping down as I tootled down my lane into the road. It's warm tonight through and once throughly soaked I don't actually give a fig about being wet, in fact I grinned with satisfaction of being liberated into the dampness! I started the run and went off a bit speedy, running past the little boutique shopping mall, and noticing a sale on( I'll be down there tomorrow I think). Then I saw blue flashing lights, thankfully not for me (this time I was fully dressed, another story...) but an ambulance. As I gaily trotted past I gazed in but didn't see who was working (husbands a paramedic and it pays to be friendly- you never know when you'll need one!). I ran out round brackabroom, which is a tree lined road of a few country residences and very quiet. I saw a grey crane hopping about in the steam finishing his supper no doubt. then bloody endo piped up and the FAST run started. I gave it a go, God loves loves a trier. But I'd had a big dinner about 6pm of duck, mashed potato, and butter squash gratin and is would be fair to say it's not the dinner of a would be champion. Aw well I'll live and learn! At 200m I thought I'd be seeing said dinner again but I plunged on thinking of greatness etc. so I got 5.10min/km instead of the recommended 5.04 I'll take that, I'm never going to be fast, I don't even like it, but I'll leave the mash out next time and who knows? So the rest of the run was recovery and it was bliss running back along the road in the soft rain, with an almost fast run under my belt. Sailing in new waters now with these sprints, but I'll give it a go- I've a tendency to be lazy. Husband of course thinks I'm nuts out in the rain. But I'm not because I can bet my bottom dollar a few of you crazies were out as well😉
