That moment when your ear gets blown up by the wind and some joker catches it on camera!
Today's run was: 5 minute jog/walk warm up 10 minute run 3 minute walk 10 minute run 5 minute jog/walk cool down This was an ok run. My calves were sore at the start and It did feel tough although I didn't know what was to come... As I started my first proper run section … Continue reading Gusty in places!
Definitely a quick burst, of energy, heat and movement! I went for the loop round the block which I am now christening my winter loop! I did remember on the walk back that I have my Buff and some gloves which I think I may need if the runs continue like this. Mainly this is due … Continue reading A Quick Burst*
It was dark It was wet And it was windy But you know what? It wasn't a bad run. It was actually quite mild considering it's November and to be honest it was comfortable enough. Yes my shoes felt a bit different but I didn't really ache and there was no soreness. In fact when … Continue reading That wasn’t so bad was it?
That pretty much sums up todays run 😞 I do not know why but it felt like I was running flat footed. Every incline I came to it felt like I was psuhing the balls of my feet into the edges of bricks. My breathing seemed laboured today. It was very humid and very windy. … Continue reading Ouch!
Managed to fit in a run tonight as my plans changed and I feel I did really well. Considering it was only my second run in my new Brooks I kept going and completed a strong 5K. I was probably fuelled by some pent up anger caused by Sweatshop. As you know I ordered myself … Continue reading Strong 5K (no thanks to @sweatshoponline )
Todays route was tougher than it should have been - I wanted to do 6K today but only managed to get past 5K again. It has been windy and colder than I expected plus I decided to try to run one big loop without repeating any of the run today. Of course doing this meant … Continue reading Route or conditions?
Following Fridays run I expected today to be a little tough and had planned a run out of the development, up the hill past Colchester Golf Club and back again. The weather was also going to be against me as although sunny, gale force winds were the order of the day. I decided I would … Continue reading Runner or David Bailey?
Todays session was a set of intervals set by Moov which were quite tough but I managed to crack through them. I nearly cracked something else - my legs! I decided to run through the new park at the top of the road and I have to tell myself to avoid it in the winter. … Continue reading Ice and Intervals
Aim - to run tonight - plain and simple. Result - ran! Kept it simple and really enjoyed it. I got home, put the ingredients in the bread machine, fed Tilly then put on my winter gear, filled my fluro running bottle, strapped my iPhone to my arm, started iSmoothRun (no Garmin etc) and headed … Continue reading A simple run
