Wednesday 14 January
I’m a ticker-offer of tasks and so given that Karen has given me a lovely weekly plan of runs to do I have been ticking them off in a gratified way after each run. Part of me is delighted to be cracking through them, but the other part looks ahead and thinks ‘oh-er, there’s a long way to go.’
Today was another slow 3 mile run. I’ve liked all this easing-into-it this week, but I know that it will start to ramp up next week. I used a 5km route that I ran a bazillion times in 2013 on my 100DFC. It was slow, but still not slow enough for my training plan. It was raining, but not too much and my music kept my head from thinking too much.
It was all very pleasant and over in 30 odd minutes.
Tomorrow I am joining the Lady Butterflies for my first group run. I am a bit apprehensive as I love running on my own and am not sure about the pacing of a group, I am also not sure how many ladies are in the group or their ability, but I’m all for getting out of my comfort zone and shall appear with my Endomondo app and positive face for a slow run for 60 minutes lead by Karen.
Still not an ache, how long can this last?
