Another week has passed us by, some folks have now become graduates, some have just become members (so nice to see new names and faces) and then we have those who are at various stages of the program and have settled in.
I will start by saying Good Evening to all fellow members, hope you all had a wonderful weekend.! Followed by an inspirational quote for those not feeling so good or have had a bad run.
"There are no shortcuts. Be patient and look long-term. It's a foolish idea that if you do a little more, faster, then you'll get better than the rest. It ignores the fact that you must train at your optimal level, not your maximum level. Consistency is the secret to improvement and success. You have to keep training when others lose interest." -Robert de Castella, 1983 World Marathon Champion.
So this evening's run was Solo No.4. What a cold night it turned out to be!! A new route today, found some roads/paths that I didn't know existed or where they led to and ended up slightly further afield than I would have liked. I don't know if it was the temperature or if I had just had a good run, but managed to set a pb of 31.06, sliced of 20 seconds .
The run itself went quite well, breathing was a lot heavier today ( I wasn't feeling tired) which took me by surprise. Don't know why, could be the cold weather who knows.
Which now brings up a question to fellow runners, on these cold winter days/nights.... "what's the norm running outfit?" I currently run in tights, a long sleeved running top, and sometimes with a base layer. Tonight I felt that maybe another layer or something would have been better, but then 5 minutes into the run and you are warm and think good job i didn't. So what does the C25K community recommend?
Like always thanks for stopping by, hope you have a wonderful day/night. Enjoy your forthcoming run/s!!
