Having decided not to go to spin class this morning because sallenson has mentioned MAMILs a few times too often. I just could not face the MAMIL spin instructor and keep a straight face - so I decided to run instead.
I got up at silly o'clock this morning. It will be too warm later to run, besides getting up early means that the sun has not yet risen properly and my route is still in the shade of the trees, making the route quite pleasant. It also means that I can run and then get back in enough time to get darling daughter out of bed and ready for school.
Even the rabbits sitting by the side of the road were half asleep, they seemed almost in trance until I got up close then they would speed off because apparently a fast approaching, red faced, middle aged woman breathing heavily is just too scary.
The run went well and I enjoyed it. This is my 3rd 25 minute run and I am now running 220 metres further within the allotted 25 minutes. So I must be getting faster, chasing the rabbits must be helping!
I think that from now on I will do my warm up walk and then start my Garmin when I start to run so that I can get a better idea of my average pace.
I feel that I could run for 30 minutes already. But I want to follow the program as it is set out - so that I can benefit from strengthening my legs and improving my average pace. Besides only 7 more runs to go until graduation. There's no hurry and I'm not out to impress anyone.
Happy running to everyone!
