Just got back from run 1 of week 4. Up until now I've found the runs OK - but crikey this run just about did me in!
Its a lovely day up here in the north of Scotland so I thought for a change I would run round some of the nearby forest trails. Big mistake - it really is A LOT harder work than on the road/pavement. Now I remember why I hated cross country so much at school!
So next time I will stick to pounding the pavements and my vibram barefoot running shoes which I prefer, and hopefully will get on a bit better.
On the plus side I didn't stop - I did get to the end of the podcast and my "sports" earphones from Lidl didn't fall out of my ears - RESULT!
