Following on from the posi vibes of last night’s good strong run, I thought I might as well get myself out for a nice short leg-stretcher from work to the Scotswood Bridge and back.
I never intended to get beyond two miles, but my aim was to do it at a good swift pace, and ideally (if possible) without any walking breaks.
Mission accomplished! I did a pretty good job of zoning my brain out from my legs (the fact I was listening to one of my go-to power albums definitely helped). I couldn’t quite complete the distance inside 20 minutes which would’ve been nice but my pace was reasonably consistent throughout.
This feels like it might be the start of a bit of much-needed momentum but next week will be key. Between now and next Friday I want to do at least three runs, with at least one of those a five miler. Wish me luck, pals.
