I went to the running shop for my gait analysis this week and left with no new trainers 😔. The shop had hardly any to try on, only about 6 pairs after rulling out the pronation support shoes and trail shoes. I was keen to try lots of different brands, esp Altras after hearing they're the only maker who designs on the female foot. I can't get back to the shops until another week or so but now I know I'm a neutral runner so at least that will help!
This week I stuck to my running plan. I did 1 x 30 min run at my normal pace. I ran 5.5km slowly as my 10% increase and I did the nrc intervals session which went by really quickly! I enjoyed them all 🙂. The routes were all different too so even more enjoyable. I'm now passing the friendly stone much earlier in the run than I used to as it's not my half way marker any more! It does remind me of how I felt during the C25K runs when I got up to the stone 😊.
I had my second jag this morning and am off camping on Skye tomorrow for 3 nights. Hoping there'll be no bad effects 😂. I'm going to take my running things with me anyway and try to go out for a 6km run while there. I love the chance to run somewhere new, especially on the longer slow run with time to look around!
The pic is a random one I took of a doorway above the local pub on my cool down walk. You can see the grapes in it but I'm not sure what the rest of the design means 😄.
Have a good week everyone!
