I test drove the Audiofuel rollercoaster podcast today. It's pretty good actually, similar to the 5K+ "stamina" podcast but 5 minutes longer and with an aussie bloke telling you what to do instead of Laura. I think I'll mix this one up with "Stamina" and "Speed" for a few weeks, and start introducing some hills.
Anyway, I managed 4.77km in the 40 mins. Not much further to go. I run on a pretty treacherous towpath so I could probably do a 5km park run in 40 or so minutes. Thinking I might go for the St Albans one in the next couple of weeks.
My ankle was pretty uncomfortable this morning when I woke up. I put it down to my advanced age and strapped it up. If I didn't run any time I creak and groan in the morning I'd never run.
I always find the first 5 mins the most difficult. This morning my feet and ankle were telling me to stop. I told them to shut up and eventually they did. Maybe I should leave 2 rest days before my next run, as 40 mins is a lot for me. But that would mean I won't run again until Thursday due to work commitments. Hmm.
Unless I bite the bullet and do a lunchtime run in London. I know lots of people do but they're all young and fit without the wobbly bits. I'm not sure I want tourists gawping at my wobbly bits bouncing up and down as I shuffle past the Tower of London, shock absorber notwithstanding!
Decisions decisions. Anyway, this is turning into more of a stream-of-consciousness than a blog, so I'll sign off for now. Happy running!
