In some years I’ve been running again just a few days after the whw race but this wasn’t some years.
I really felt I needed at least 10 days off and last week I didn’t even want to think about running. From Monday onwards I was looking forward to getting going again but I’m glad I kept to the 10days.
I ran at lunch time with a colleague Ivonne. She was keen to do a steady easy pace which was great for me.
We did a 6mile loop from Bellahouston Park through Pollok Park and back. I have decided for a while to not worry about pace and time and just have my watch set to distance.
So here is what my garmin is set to …
We’ll see how it goes but I’m keen to get more of a feel to my running and not worry too much about pace for a while.
I also went back to Run-4-it and bought another pair of trail shoes. They had a good deal whereby you get £20 off a second pair if you buy them within 30days of the first purchase.
I went for a pair of Inov-8 Terroc ….
I’m planning to use these for the Devil o’ the Highlands Race.
One of things I’ve decided to do is to change my training a bit. So I’m going to do some cross training rather than running every day. Glasgow council is running a ‘cycle to work’ scheme which means I can buy a new bike 40-50% off.
I’m looking at getting a decent road bike either a Trek or Giant. My friend Grant is going to have a look with me tomorrow and give me some advice. So I’m planning to do some more cycling.
