Went out for a run yesterday and ran just under a mile and half (1.39 or rounded up 1.4miles) Felt great but one of the roads I ran up was uphill and I felt my like lungs were fit to burst although I did not stop till I got to my front door. Should I do more hill work to improve my stamina?
One nice thing that occurred was as I was out other runners smiled and said hello as they passed me which made me feel good and a proper runner.
Since the olympics I feel it is easier for people like myself who are slightly bigger than the average to go out for a run without looking and feeling stupid. Hardly anyone takes any notice and other runners like the ones I saw yesterday acknowledge you.
