As ideas go….

Going for a 4 mile run when I’ve recently started cycling 10 miles to work possibly wasn’t a great idea! The run was, as is the norm, uneventful 4 miles in 32 minutes and 28 seconds. I’m really beginning to tire of the scenery around us, and also the music on my ipod. Unfortunately the only time I remember to change the music is when I’m out running.

I’ve discovered a horrible new affect of running, the toxic 10 minutes, its as bad as it sounds! Its all to do with cold muscles and lactic acid I think, basically its the first couple of miles of a run you feel like stopping after each step. Your legs feel heavy and you just want to give up. So that’s the toxic 10 minutes to look forward to at the start, and the wall to look forward to after a good number of miles. I really do think I’ll just be running the one marathon in my lifetime!

a run at last!

So the knee-knack has cleared up and there’s no snow in the glorious Kingdom so out I trotted this morning.  After my 2 long runs the last 2 Sundays today was just a short stroll, 6 miles.  It was a pleasant, sunny morning so I braved the elements in shorts and a tshirt and headed out.  A typically uneventful run was had, the highlight was em well there wasn’t really a highlight but it was good to stretch my legs, 48 minutes and 30 seconds to do the run so not too shabby at all.  A rest day tomorrow and then we’ll see how the snow is in Aberdeen in Tuesday.
