Learn To Walk Before You Can Run
I didn’t really feel much like running this evening. I started a new job today and, as is often the case with starting a new job, I was a bit bored. It’s not that work isn’t interesting; it’s just that I didn’t get to do very much other than watch other people, which isn’t much fun.
Needless to say, when I got home this evening I was feeling a bit deflated. I know, it will get better and I just need to be patient and learn to… what’s that thing they say… walk before I can run? Hmm… funny how the whole experience of running and training can put things into perspective, isn’t it?
So, even though I was in a bit of a downer, I decided that I would go out for an evening plod along the promenade. According to my self-styled C25K plan, I’m on Week 4 Day 2, which for me meant doing about 3.5K using a 4:1.5 run walk ratio. So that’s what I did, and you know what? I felt much better for it.
How’s your training going? Please share your thoughts in the comments.
