Taking time out
Really did forget how much changes if you stop training for a couple of weeks, been on holiday, had the other half move in and work got in the way of running for a few weeks, first run yesterday was shameful!
Did do 3 runs in Spain on holiday which made me feel a bit smug, and toasty.
Got A new pair of shiny Saucony shoes to play with now, and a new Nike dri-fit kit, after a little spnding splurge.
Onwards and upwards I hope, got to knuckle down and train a bit harder.
Tell me about it, holiday & a severe case of cant-be-arsed-itis meant I'd slacked off big style for a couple of weeks so when I went out for a 6mile run the other Saturday thinking this'll be a doddle I was sadly mistaken and had to admit defeat at 4miles. Have been out for a couple more 4 mile runs since then so am hoping that'll stand me in good stead for the scheduled 8miler this saturday *fingers crossed*
Ooooh I have a new pair of Sauconys too... Am gonna wear them tonight for a little 3mile tester run.
I'm quite impressed by them, they cost a small fortune - really light on the feet, and wide enough which I really like.
Got a 5.5miler on the 29th, so should be Ok, the 5km last night wasn't the easiest still!
It was warm/extremely close yesterday though which could explain why your run wasn't the easiest one in the world. I thought about going on the treadmill in the gym after abs class last night but figured as it was so warm the gym with it's carp air conditioning would be unbearable. Is that 5.5miler a race or just what your training plan says??? I never think to go up in half miles, I always whack another full mile on when doing my plans.
Which ones have you got??? Mine are the Omni 7 or something.
Right that's it I must get out of the door tonight, I've ran once I think it the last 4 weeks and just can't motivate myself once I've walked the dog and done the million and one other things that I seem to have to do.
No kids swimming lesson tonight, just a job application to do some more on, an OU assignment to get started and a submission to get Chartered to get started !
I can spare half an hour to get out of the door with my trainers on.
I need to get back up to long runs at the weekend to help shift some of this stone that keeps hanging around me.
What time are you going?
I will try to meet you - virtually of course
2 weeks? 4 weeks? Pah, that's nothing.
Stopped running at 15 weeks pregnant, started again 6 weeks ago, when my daughter was 11 months old.
Now THAT is hard work.
No hard work is starting when you're 39 (after having baby no. 3) having never run before except around a hockey pitch (the last time being in the sixth form).
I started off on the RW run/walk programme run 1 walk 2 minutes, which was OK, but when I moved up to 2 and 2 I thought my legs were broken when I'd finished my 1/2 hour!
But I've now done a few 10Ks and a half marathon this year , whichI hope to do again if I can get my backside out of the door
I'm heading out around 8pm.
Went to a nice restaurant at lunch so am well fuelled!
