Desperately trying to hold on to that mindset of running as medicine! Only left it 4 days this time since last run, so better.
Went out this evening with a couple of new things to try: firstly, yet another sports bra (I'm not made of money, they have all been bra-gains, and I'll be selling my rejects), secondly, mapmyrun on my phone to actually map my run, and thirdly I picked the radio dramatisation of Good Omens instead of music or comedy.
Sports bra - band was a bit big (frustrating variation within one brand!). Comfy though. Mapmyrun probably would have been better had I actually started the "workout" when I started running, but otherwise I was impressed, having not tracked myself running before! I think I'm happy to have the mechanical voice lady shouting the kms and splits. Handy as my pace regulation isn't brilliant and I really don't want to overdo it. Good Omens, though entertaining, probably wasn't the best choice though as the combination of road crossing, dog poo awareness, etc., and trying to follow the dialogue, wasn't good. I think back to music and comedy next time!
Overall, just good to get in another run. The running itself felt a bit tough, legs quite tired, but carried on for 29 minutes. I was quite slow, not as steady as I'd like (knowing each km time is interesting!) but at least I know I wasn't overdoing it. I really want properly chosen shoes, even if they aren't so different from mine now I'll know I did the most to prevent niggles becoming injuries, but hopefully stretches, rest day exercise, and not pushing hard are the thing.
