PB tonight!!!!

PB tonight!!!!

Hi gang,

Hope everyone is well! I went out for the usual plod around and about this evening. I didn't think I was going to anything major but low and behold I ran a little further and a little faster than before. I have finally broken into the 7's per km which was my first goal of the solo running so glad I did that tonight. I still have a long way to go but it felt good, really good. I think I'm an overpronator on my left foot so I've had a bit of a painful calf but I think that's what it is!

Also I have a new Tomtom watch so although I used it tonight, I haven't worked out how to download the information so will work it out and hopefully start using that rather than runkeeper. It seemed easy to use so all good so far. I even ended up reading the instructions, well my son did because I couldn't work out how to turn it off!!!!

So that's that for now. Next run will be Saturday and then hopefully Monday morning I'm off for gait analysis and new shoes!

Great thank you. I've started running outside again. Monday Wednesday Friday. Was running with OH in the evenings but he's not so keen.

It really is a solo sport and so satisfying isn't it. :)

Yeh I agree, I can't run with anyone else. I don't think I could talk, I can barely worry about breathing generally when I'm running! Hahaha! xxx

Well done!

I also have a TomTom and you can actually use it's own software AND Runkeeper at the same time.

If you want help, just ask :-)

Hi Elsie,

Well done - you are doing so well! Great to see folk enjoying their running post- graduation! Hope the gait analysis goes well. I overpronate and finding the right shoes can make a real difference. I am an Asics Gel Kayano girl myself! Whatever you settle on, don't forget to show off your new shoes here!🙂
