Well, tonight's run could have gone better.
I headed off into the woods behind the sports centre, and up. I hadn't been going long, when I noted a huge bird, but, not quite a bird. I watched this thing, the size of a heron circling above the trees, and, so busy trying to work out what it was, I ran into a branch. Small cut to the face, but no serious damage done, but I decided to head back to the safety of the sports centre. In the end I am inclined to wonder if it wasn't a remote control plane or a drone.
Struggling to settle into a run, I decided to mix it up for a bit. I was doing laps of the cricket field, carrying out ]various interval type run, walk, sprint, punching, high knees,and bottom kicks.
I was up to 3km and swapping tip toe walks and walking on heels when an older gentleman who had been watching me for two laps of the field came and asked what I was doing, as he hadn't seen intervals like it... I explained I was doing various exercises which worked the different leg muscles. He recommended running backwards. I politely explained that, this was unlikely due to poor balance.
Ah well, onto Sunday.
