Post grad run now ticked off and as I was advised, a good rest was all I needed and I got a PB to boot for one of my usual routes.
I went out Sunday morning for a run in Richmond Park, about 8am, clear blue sky and frost on the ground it was lovely. Lots of runners around but I realised not many look happy and hardly any acknowledge me when I smiled and said hi. I now have a new challenge to always say hi as I pass a fellow runner and raise my hand in acknowledgement. So if you see a runner in a very bright yellow top in the Richmond area wheezing out hi and waving, it’s only me, a nod would be nice.
I have now started to lengthen my runs, I will add an extra 500m to each of my routes. I have completed one of them on Sunday which went well I have two more routes I have to do yet, once I feel comfortable I will add another 500m. It's just an idea to keep the motivation going as well as using the C25K+ podcasts.
Has anybody tried the Audio Fuel tracks that Laura recomends?
