Ok so had played golf this morning and it was a bit damp out there so I expected today to be tough.
2 x 8 min runs with 5 mins walk in between.
I coasted the first eight minutes and didn't even break into a sweat !!
Second eight minutes was a bit different though - I made a massive miscalculation of where I thought that section was going to start.
I had to begin running at the bottom of a steep incline which was a bit of a pain !!
Just dug deep and got on with it thinking about all you guys saying 'slow down Richard' in my ear.
The eight minutes was up and I carried on for another couple of minutes as well - partly because I was about a million miles from home !!
Sweating like mad by the time I got home and sat down to type this but I am already recovered.
I still marvel at the progress I am making and have to pinch myself that I, fatty Richard has just run 8 minutes and then 10 minutes.
Loving it now !
For all those who read my last ream of drivel I also wore my new (early) birthday running shoes.
They are Asics GT - 1000 4 and it was like wearing slippers - truly wonderful !!
