Well, today I was not feeling too brill, but the kids had been packed off to grannies so there was no excuse for not going out for a run....
Needed Laura to hold my hand so decided to put on the stamina podcast. Not having the least idea what would be required I started the warm up walk, slightly faster than my normal as Laura tells you what beat to follow.
Then 3 lots of 10 minute runs, well, actually it's 30 minutes at two different paces. Great, I thought, I can do this, and I planned to nicely finish close to the car park with a 5 minute cool down walk. THEN! SHOCK! Laura says we are going to do a 5 minute invigorating run at a faster pace! 'You're taking the p**s', I thought.
However, not wanting to be beaten, I upped the pace (uphill, as there is no other way from the car park), and duly completed the 5 minutes. I have to say I was dead chuffed. Not only was I feeling fantastic, having started the podcast feeling rubbish, but I'd done the 35 minutes just as required!
So thanks Laura and NHS! I really enjoyed it!
