Yay, just got back from last run of week 2. This morning was lovely, was able to go out a bit later and timed it so that I was running alongside the river as the sun came up.
Saw a few other runners, all faster than me and (obv) not stopping for walks, but imagining me being able to do that in a few weeks time is quite inspiring
This morning the app was a bit uncooperative and didn't want to talk over the music - anyone else had that? It did dip the volume on the music where the talking should have been so I timed it from that. Except I missed the last cue, was thinking "this feels like quite a long 90s" and found I was 2 mins into the cooldown walk
Ankles/ achilles tendon quite achy this week. I have a weakness in my left ankle anyway (have been over on it a couple of times in the past). My own fault this week, wore flatties for a job interview and ankles very sore the next day - it wasn't caused by the running. Took an extra rest day, did extra stretches, strapped it up at night and it felt fine this morning. But def going to get gait analysed and new trainers next week. Will plan extra rest days if it feels sore at all. And no more flat shoes without gel heel inserts.
I feel great!
Legs felt fine this morning, even with unplanned longer run. Looking forwards to next week. The scariest thing is going to be me walking into a running shop!
I got the job.
