Ran for thirty minutes last night. It might well be the only time in my entire life I have ever done this as I don't remember even cross-country at school involving half an hour of continuous running.
Took the run much easier yesterday as my ankles and lower calves were feeling the effects of pushing hard on the last run of week eight. I did cover 5k but it took 28m 50s to get there. Felt much better and I am pleased I didn't try too hard and risk injury at this late stage.
Swapped my worn out trainers for a new pair of Nike Air Pegasus which felt much better. Didn't get gait analysis but I did look at the wear on my old trainers and tried to gauge my footprint before I decided what type of trainer to buy. They felt very different to my old New Balance but in a good way as far as I can tell - less shock on the shins with each stride.
So on Saturday I'm going to try and make a parkrun. My nearest is St Albans.
Good luck to everyone running today.
