So doing the whole program again from scratch. Wk1 completed. Good to be back out.
Today was W2R1 and what a day for it. Glorious blue skies with big fluffy March clouds and enough of a breeze that meant it was enough to keep me cool during the run but not to be too cold during the walking. Even the leggings were off and it was shorts only. I looked like a neon yellow 2 pin plug!
Up to the fields and forests. 120dB MJ greeting and I'm away.
What a beautiful day. The catkins on the trees are all opening and spring is in the air. But wait....there is something else in the air.
The farmer is getting ready to spread the fields and so now, along the 800m Lane of Pain incline is a lot of manure. And I mean a LOT of manure. And typically it is just as MJ tells me to start my next 90 second run.
So I am getting my breathing back to normal right from Wk1 this time around which means it is big lungfuls through the nose. Ahh....that smell of the country. My eyes were burning!!
I know we encourage everyone to take it nice and slow and then slow down a bit more but I admit I may have upped my pace slightly. And then with this monolithic mile of poo seeming to never end I get told to slow down to a brisk walk. It bl**dy well was brisk I can tell you.
May take the route through the forest on Saturday.
Enjoy the journey.
