The pavements were clear enough to run. Went out, ran for 6.46 minutes. Legs like lead, totally out of breath. Realised I had forgotten to use my inhaler. Came back and used it. Set out again. Ran for 5-8 minutes: realised i had forgotten to set my Garmin. i wasn't using the app as I wanted to time only the 25 minute run, and stopping and starting watches and phones was too complicated, but i listened to the app first so knew what to do. Ran for just under another 3 minutes and had to give up.
I don't know if i had eaten too close to running, and i think I probably wasn't completely over the labyrinthitis, so lesson learned there. Only managed about 15 minutes altogether, so I will leave it a day or two and repeat this run.
However, my times are faster now I'm not timing the walking bits, which was a pleasant surprise as i had thought I was walking faster than i ran. My average pace before was around 10k/m. Today it was 7.57k/m with fastest time 6.26 so am pleased with that (note to mentors, i wasn't trying to go fast and in fact was struggling).
Wish me luck for next time. i have to say it's slightly dented my confidence not to be able to complete a run, but i guess i have to put it down to circumstances. I think maybe having that nice Mr Johnson cheer me on and encourage me is a good thing, so maybe i will have to juggle watches and apps after all.
One annoying thing: this is the third version of this I've had to write. Highlighting a typo to correct it sometimes results in the whole post disappearing if you write it on anything but a physical keyboard.
