Not posted for awhile . Seem to have been busy fitting everything in.
After weeks of putting off the 10k app I started it Monday it's the zen app she doesn't say much apart from 5minute walk warm up, run, walk , run ,warm down with 5min walk .
Day 2today planned a different route and off I went no gremlins this morning . It was 6.30 am and cool , my new route took me along tree lined roads . And beautiful houses up hills and down,across a motor way and underneath it . Through an underpass , then back into the town . My mind goes through a myriad of things along the way none to do with running , and I got into a good rhythm , my thought were interrupted by the American voice .walk. So I did but not for long just enough to have a break,then the voice Run so off I went feeling oh so good , then the hill I was going up, oh so slow but I was still going , almost to the top wishing I could hear her say walk but she didn't so I thought I'm gonna walk for a bit , got to the top which wasn't that far, then she said walk, I'm sure I said it out loud been there done that, but no one about to hear me anyway, and on I went got to the part where I should of turned left to make it 6k and thought I really don't want to stop so I didn't . My route change added another hill and carried on. the fit bit app goes at the same time as the zen 10k one so I can see my splits and map And it said 6k so I thought I'm going to keep going and on I went I had the voice say warm down , but I thought later , before I knew it I was almost at the 8k mark so on checking the app completed the8 then dutifully did my walking warm down. It felt fantastic, and I feel I'm on my way to completing the 10 by the end of the month . At the end of sept I'm running (hark at me running) a 10 k women only event at Windsor , so from fear and trepidation I feel I may be confident enough to do it, hope this is not too boring a post, but my friends think I'm mad at my age to start jogging ! Let alone enter events.
