Last night was my weekly run with Sweatshop Running Club and I have to say, on arrival, I wasn’t feeling 100% (thank you gross man for sneezing and coughing over everyone on the tube) but I really wanted to do a good run…I think the odds were against me though…
After training on Monday my legs felt a bit tired and my shins were giving me some jip (grr)… as well as that I got lost at the end of the route and didn’t end up doing the full mileage…damn it…
Trying to fool the super speedy Sam Barnes that I had in fact over taken him because I was so fast didn’t wash at all (mwahaha). He is very kindly going to give me some tips to look after my little legs through my training which I definitely need as I am known to just want to push through and carry on…NOT a good plan!!
I’m also trying to do this run without music to get used to listening to my breathing instead. As much as I love bopping along to a bit of Ri Ri, I don’t want to have to rely on it in order to keep up a good pace… We’ll see how I get on…
Question of the day: How do you beat the horrid shin pain?
Distance – 4 miles
Time – 28mins (not a happy bean)
Pace – 7:55 per mile
Weather: Drizzly – horrid wet leaves
Music – None
Oh, I got my first online donation today from my Mum and Dad…aww..thanks guys!!
