I usually cannot fit in a run on Tuesdays but due to staying in tonight and the possibility of an early start/full day tomorrow at the zoo I went out after lunch.
Not my finest run, I could not get my pace right (I blame Julie for not getting me into my 1,2,3,4 rhythm). Then I decided on a little detour from my week eight runs to "add" the extra 2 minutes near the beginning! Unfortunately the pavement was very cracked and uneven so that really didn't help my pace either.
Anyway, back to the usual route and I settled down a bit, although it is the first time I have seemed to struggle against the music beat. Relieved to find that the paths across the meadow have been mown since Sunday, the grass was getting a bit long.
No trouble with the extra 2 minutes though, I suspect that the real problem is that morning runs are better for me. I think I probably did a good distance, although because I hadn't planned to run today I put my pedometer on this morning so I had to take note of what I did earlier (or I could have tried to work out how to reset it! It does that automatically at midnight)
I am getting dangerously close to buying a watch or monitor of some kind, although it is very difficult to decide what will be best for me
