I’m On It!

2015-07-22I didn’t manage to make it out for my 2nd run of C25K yesterday, but don’t worry, I’m on it. I went out this morning instead.

Part of me was thinking that I might just move on to Week 3, but I decided against it for a couple of reasons. Firstly, I’ve only completed two sessions so far (one from Week 1 and one from Week 2), so I didn’t want to push too hard too soon; and secondly, I didn’t want to delay the run by thinking too much about it beforehand, so it made sense to just switch off the brain and get going.

I headed to Hove Rec again, mostly because it’s a bit closer than the seafront, but also because it has some gentle inclines which I figure is probably good for strengthening the old achilles – thankfully that’s one thing that hasn’t given me too many problems recently. I still have to be careful with it, but so far it’s doing ok.

The run itself was slow and steady. I used the same 90 second intervals as before and it felt pretty good, so I’ll probably step up to Week 3 next time.

In saying that though, my next run is most likely going to be parkrun on Saturday. I know I said I would just be volunteering  throughout the summer, but a local running group have offered to cover all the roles this week so it would be rude not to take advantage of the opportunity to try out the new course.

I’m not sure yet what my strategy will be for parkrun as I know my leg won’t cope with running the full 5K without walk breaks. Perhaps I’ll go back to my favourite 3:1 ratio, or maybe I’ll just play it by ear? Who knows? But it will be nice to take part in an event again.

How’s your training going? Are you following a training plan or just running for fun? Please share your thoughts in the comments.

      Thanks Cynthia. One of the things I love about this blogging community is the way that everyone encourages, inspires and helps to motivate each other – not sure if I’d still be running without it. I hope you’re having a great weekend. 🙂
