So today I have just finished week 8 run 1.
At work we were talking about how we keep motivated on treadmills / stop ourselves getting bored and my experienced runner friend (think 10k every week) told me she listens to audio books! Now, I am a massive bookworm so I thought I'd give this a go instead of watching shows like I usually do.
As I was feeling a bit heavy legged I made sure to do a 10 minute warm up instead of the 5 and then moved treadmills and started measuring my distance from when I began jogging (just for interest).
It was amazing how different it was.
I didn't once think about time or distance or speed, just plodded along listening to some thriller mystery for the 28 minutes!! I was actually really annoyed when Laura said stop!
About 3 mins into the cool down walk.. I checked my FitBit and realised I had covered 4.55k.. so I made the executive decision to carry on to the 5!
I ran it in 36 minutes!!
So yes - slightly not sticking fully to week 8, but SUPER PLEASED WITH MYSELF.
