If it's Tuesday, it must be intervals!

Yes, I seem to have an established pattern now where Sunday is my 'long' run (ha!), Tuesday is intervals, and Thursday doesn't quite happen. 🙄😄

So despite my legs feeling rather tired still from Sunday's exertions, off I went after work. Fortunately the rain came and went while I was getting ready to go out, so it was quite pleasant after all.

All in all it was quite uneventful. Cedric tried to persuade me I couldn't do this, so I let him have a 10-20s walk while RunKeeper gave me my 15 min update which was conveniently at the end of a quick interval. I figure that's more than compensated by the fact that the RunKeeper updates regularly mean I get the extra time on the quick runs too!

The last minute was good though - really pushed it as hard as I could. Flying, I was! 😉

Flying - sounds good to me, well done for getting out there in the rain (I don't mind a bit of drizzle but winter seems to have returned here so sleet, snow and windy - brr!).

Glorious for my run yesterday and absolutely throwing it down today and chilly... no snow though!

I hope it cheers up a bit for you :) x

I was lucky (for once!) that the rain had gone before I went out. Fortunately we haven't had the sleety, really cold stuff here! I do feel for those who have, though. Just when we thought spring was really here... :-\

Definitely the huge smile (or perhaps a grimace...!) ;) And, best of all, I feel good today! My knee is holding up well, and has stopped twinging painfully whenever I walk anywhere - I think due to me switching to wearing only flat shoes. (Sob, all those lovely heels which I just can't wear any more. :( The sacrifices we make for our sport! ;) )

Yeay!!! Smile it was then :) x

I know.. I had to give mine, mostly unworn to Little Mum.... I had some glorious red ones!!!! Now If I wear heels they are the lower chunky ones.. a bit. Theresa May-ish. Aghhhhhhhhh!!!

We do make the sacrifices willingly though, and on the plus side, I am now a neat Size 10 in jeans :) Gotta love this running :)

Size 10. Oh how I wish!!! ;) But how I enjoy my increased fitness - being able to run for the bus, or back from a friend's house across the road, just because...! :)

You know the irony: this evening I missed my bus by a whisker. Should have run for it...! 🙄
