Apologies if the post title puts that particular music worm in your head all day.
Doing this running thing has made me a creature of habit. Up early every Monday, Wednesday and Friday and out running. You may have noticed that today is Thursday not Wednesday.
I am on holiday this week which meant that I could go for a long run on Monday. On Tuesday we were out all day which meant an early start and a late finish. I managed to get up ok on Wednesday morning but couldn't get myself out the door to run. I kept putting off going for a run all day.
I headed off this morning for my catch up run. I ran for a little over 30 minutes. At the beginning my legs were a little tired perhaps the after effects of Monday's long run and of being on my feet for most of Tuesday. I soon settled into a natural rhythm, neither too fast nor too slow. It just felt right.
My pace does not seem to be increasing much but I guess that I have to remember that I am still a baby runner. My objective may not seem to be too stretching, to run for at least 30 minutes 3 times a week, but I am exceeding it. And it is certainly a lot more than I was doing 13 weeks ago sitting on the couch. So all is good.
