Running in the rain

Thursday 9th May 2019

I had a great run today, I started off thinking it was going to be a slow run but it only took a few minutes to get going, when I looked at my watch and saw my pace was under 8 min per mile it gave me the enthusiasm to keep pushing myself.

When I got to about the 3rd mile the rain started, This put a huge smile on my face. It’s not that I love the rain – I much prefer running in the sun but I have not run in the rain for quite some time and it made a refreshing change. It is a bit like when you run a new route it makes it fun and different. It also helped that it was still lovely and warm even with the rain so it was lovely to run in.

Today was a 40 minute tempo run – 4 minutes slow, 15 minutes steady, 3 minutes slow, 15 minutes steady and 3 minutes slow.

50 Minute Tempo run

Tuesday 12th February 2019

Today was a fantastic day, It took a while to get my butt out the front door but when I started I really enjoyed myself.

I even got a good pace at times, better than I was aiming for.

I started with a 5 minute warm-up jog, this was easy to go slow as I had just started, I then jumped into a 20 minute steady run which was great, 5 minute slow run again, 15 minute steady run and finishing off with a 5 minute cool down jog then the walk home.

Wow it was so good to have a fun run after Sunday, I am looking forward to tomorrows run.
