Dry, still, not too cold
Warm-up: Fast walk 0.6 mile
Jog: 2 mile
Fast jog (keeping up with some other runners out on their training!):
Jog: 0.7 mile
During: Good. Was focusing on maintaining a comfortable pace and getting a steady comfortable jog. Until I got competitive and decided to chase the runners! That got me to maximum effort – but I kept going and slowed down my pace until I’d fully recovered.
After: My legs were like jelly for a bit – although I kept walking until I’d cooled down. Then I did stretches before getting in the car. I got a stitch in my upper-right side (ribcage) during the warm-down walk.
My legs were pretty stiff and sore (at the top near the hips) on the second day after running. 2 years ago
As part of the beginnings of my running training for the 10k in 7 weeks, I did a preliminary run of 3.2 miles (wow – I just calculated it!) – that’s more than I thought!
Plus as a warm-up / warm-down I did a 1.2 mile fast/slow walk (wow that’s more than I thought too!)
I haven’t done any running for months. But I have been going to circuits and swimming every week – which has probably helped my fitness. I’ve done hardly any walking recently though. I’m really happy with this.
I drank a small cappuccino before heading out. Perhaps the caffeine helped?!
The run along the prom has notable headwind. Getting stronger once on the new prom.
Hmm that was a fair bit of mileage. The race course is apparently 10k – which is 6.5. miles? The course seems a lot longer than advertised. I’m going to check it out on google maps! 2 years ago
I was wondering if I should mark this goal done. I have done many sprints to catch bus/tram/train, meetings, or my classes.
Does it count as running? Obviously yes! But it is cheating.
This is not about how many goals have been marked done, it is not like to-do list that we would like to finish them as soon as possible. It should be worth doing and meaningful, otherwise is pointless. 2 years ago
