It would be great to sail through graduation this week, but the 30 min runs are just out of my reach at the moment. I'm very close, but I'm needing a couple of sneaky pauses to keep me going - ostensibly to check the time on my Fitbit or to put on/take off my waterproof, but actually ...
So I've decided to stop thinking about graduation and to focus on consolidating at the level I'm at. I think I'll be able to run 30 mins comfortably before too long.
My plan is -
To keep running x 3 every week, aiming for 30 mins
To get to know myself better as a runner, to improve my confidence and to make peace with the what-on-earth-do-you-think-you're-doing-at-63 gremlin which is still nipping away in my head
To keep improving my strength and stamina - I'm already very happy about my improved fitness 🙂
To experiment with new routes, apps etc
To figure out the whole winter running thing, and how/where to run on dark days when I'm working
And somewhere along the way I'm determined to collect that shiny badge!
