Well that was interesting. Warmed up by walking down the hill to the railway line/cycle track/footpath to town and set off at what I thought was my normal pace BUT after less than a minute, it wasn't feeling right. Slowed right down to a walk and tried to analyse what was wrong: too fast, too slow, backpack bouncing and throwing me off balance, ground too hard? Finally came to the conclusion that it just wasn't to be.
Undaunted, continued to the leisure centre that was to be my ultimate destination anyway for some strength work and went straight to the treadmill and set out to prove I can still run. And run I did. 4km in just under 38 minutes!
Any ideas why the outdoor adventure was so disastrous?
