Today was an exciting day! It had been a while since my last run due to the crazy weather! I wanted to run regardless but when I went out with my dog I found the snow was far too deep and where it wasn’t we were skidding all over the place on the ice so I decided it’d be best to wait to avoid injury! I kept my legs busy though! Did a long walk each day and cycled between 10-15K on my exercise bike each night so I didn’t go back to couch life! 😂I thought today’s run would be really hard given that it was the longest I’d gone without running. But I surprised myself! My legs were on autopilot more than ever before and my pace was probably the most consistent it has been so far so that felt good!
Couchphoenix recently recommended the Nike Run Club app to me I enjoyed the C25K podcasts as I really like having that voice in my ear to keep me updated on where I am in the run and offer me some motivation, but I was getting a bit bored of W9R3! The Nike Run Club app did not let me down! I got to listen to my own music while listening to a lovely upbeat chap named Coach Bennett giving me advice and things to think about. He’s a pretty cheesy dude but I love that! It’s exactly what I need to keep me positive and motivated it also maps your run and gives you a breakdown of your distance and speed etc at the end which is pretty cool! I’d definitely recommend it and thanks to Couchphoenix for recommending it to me!
Happy running everyone!
