Hi guys, I just want to share with you my jubilation at such a good running week I’ve had.
I think I’ve finally worked out my plan for post grad runs, and this is my plan for going forward for the next few weeks:
Run 1 - intervals doing fast and slow runs
Run 2 - C25k+ Stepping Stones podcast, structured run with defined pace increasing over the duration of the run
Run 3 - Free Run
On Wednesday this week a fellow runner I see on my usual route detoured round to come and run alongside me and congratulate me on the work I’m doing. It felt so nice having someone else notice all my hard work and it was also nice to run along with someone although I couldn’t maintain his pace for too long he was very sweet and full of encouragement. So much so I’ve registered with Park Run!! Yikes!! 🤪. I’ve not decided when I do my first one yet but I’ve got my barcode and am ready to go.
Last nights free run saw me manage 35mins doing 3.5km, an increase of 0.5k compared to my last few runs, so super chuffed again 😊.
And this is how I know I’m getting good at this fitness stuff, I went walking with a friend this morning up a little hill not far from here. When I done this walk 2 months ago it took me 50 minutes on both the walk up and down. Today we did the same walk but in 40 minutes each way this time!! It was windy so maybe we were blown along, but am happy with the knowledge that all my hard work is paying off. And if you think I was joking about the wind, just see our photo, lol.
Well, that was it. Hubby is away at the moment so just wanted to share my happy feelings with someone and I know you lovely people would appreciate my thoughts xx
