Strange thing happened this morning - I'll try and just summarise...
6:20 While snoozing in bed... M I'm looking forward to my second run.. B What? I thought you hated it - Have another 5 mins in bed.
6:25 M Mental prep for the run completed - feeling excited / anticipation for the run. B Feeling excited too - Mind and body in agreement - (thats a first). Up we get.
Quick breakfast, wave off my better half to work - Fitbit on wrist, C25k app started, GPS enabled, Fitbit run started, Buds in, Hat on, Gloves on and off we go.
Warm up fine - first few step of jog (shuffle really) - knee twinge, slowed to walk, tried again - all ok
Shuffled for 40 secs and ran out of puff - slowed to recovery, did some belly breathing to increase the air intake (rather than just the chest stuff).
Still a little puffed to start second segment - jogged for 20 secs - M Suprised how quickly I went back to a stroll - B Dont push it! - this IS the first day you've tried to jog! (Don't forget about all those extra tubs of lard you are carrying around.) Point made.
3rd segment - M Try a slow jog for 30secs - B ok....10 secs later back to toddle. Body says - don't set me a target - just go with the flow. M agrees.
4th segment - M+B going with the flow in tandem (hmm wish I was on one) - So Jogged a few steps walked a few steps and repeated for the minute duration with any complaint from M+B.
Continued for the remain segments.
***** Lessons learned w1r2 ******
Its ok to be enthusiastic - this is the "new" you
Don't push too much! take it easy! Listen to the advice!
Breathing deeper and slower (after run)
Feels great to be out in the environment - rather than the house or the gym.
Push in your buds a bit further and you can't really hear all the cars thats distracting your focus.
Turn around point appeared quicker today (must be enjoying this) Time flies rule..
So a good second run with thanks to C25K friends for the support.
I hope you've all had a good run or rest day today.
Joe (feeling ever so slightly smug with himself)
