Spent the weekend walking the dog - lovely breezy treks with great views, although it did have the unfortunate effect of reminding me how far 5k seems at the beginning...and how many times Maisey stops for a sniff en route. But it just means that I will have to make time for both, I'm thinking walk Maisey on my 'running rest days'. I do feel guilty going out without her, but she will get plenty of time out in the fresh air.
Saturday was a successful walk on the beach - 4.4 and a bit miles or 9900 steps at an apparently healthy pace according to my android phone. Thinking the beach could be a good weekend place to run, its scenic no matter the weather and quiet this time of year.
Sunday involved a 2.8mile amble (6200 steps) on Lytham green - much busier here on weekends but will be better for running at night because it has bright street lamps along the path and there's always people out walking. It's where I did all of my couch to 5k training last time.
Had fidgety legs all night and have woken up with an ache in my left shin. Hmm.
Cough seems to be subsiding, thinking Wednesday might be the day to start day 1!!
