Day 91: Running up that hill
Good afternoon 😀
It was only a matter of time until I used that Kate Bush song reference now wasn’t it! Well…in all honesty it wasn’t a very big hill, but it was double the elevation I have run before and I had to do it twice…and I am not very good at hills…even tiny slopes put me off!
I ran the same interval pattern as Wednesday, I did also have to take a few extra walks during the longer run intervals but still not that many…
This run was slower, I knew it would be while I was going as my calves hurt quite a bit during the second half of the run. I am still happy with my distance and time…I still went over 4k, 350 metres less is not so bad and considering how bad my legs felt yesterday, I am really really pleased to have gone running at all!! The second half of this run was slower than the first, I seemed to need more breaks in the second bit.
I think I might actually be improving it felt harder but I still managed a distance that I didn’t expect! It still feels right to be doing intervals rather than attempting long runs at the moment so I am going to continue for the time being.
I am not sure what made me turn right out of work rather than left, it is not as nice a route to run, there are more people and roads and less trees and squirrels (hmmm maybe also less chance of getting ambushed… see here). It made a change mind you 🙂 but I think I will go back to the other one next week. I may do some running on the downs link over the weekend…we shall have to see 🙂
in other news…I don’t think my runnign shoes are going to be the same again after saturday’s colour run!!
they didn’t used to be this pink!
Day 91 Complete 🙂 (unless I go to the gym in a minute)
