Well nearly. I decided on todays run that I would ignore the intervals and simply run.
I had the right mindset today as I pushed myself to go further and gave myself targets in my head which I kept moving. Unfortunately I just missed the target of 2K without stopping (by 0.2k!) but I am very pleased with my progress.
It was still tough and my right leg was still sore but I enjoyed simply getting into a rhythm and enjoying the run.
I did have a bit of a mantra today though as I ended up with the hook from Groovy running through my head. It seemed to settle a bit of a rhythm and I found myself running to it.
I cannot say the rest of the new Pet Shop Boys album Super had an impact on my run but at least there is a definite ear worm there 😃
I like Super however I am not blown away by it. There are some great stand out songs such as Groovy, Burn, Into Thin Air and Say it to Me but the rest I think is pretty forgettable. You never know. It may get some more plays and I may end up really liking it…
It was lovely to see some blossom on the trees even if it still does not feel that warm (he says drinking a post run hot chocolate!)
It’s been a busy old week again at work but the hard work has paid off as I have a new job 😃 I don’t have an official start date yet due to a few things that need to be sorted between my old team and new team, however I should hopefully be moving around the beginning of May.
My new role will see me move to a new department and working with Marketers in Europe (so there will be a bit of travelling 😃 ). It finally feels like all my hard work has paid off.
Talking of work, we had an event in the office for the relaunch of Axe/Lynx and I got myself featured in the ad campaign – no joke! It’s not the most flattering of photo’s but it’s just a bit of fun.
