Oh my goodness I’m late getting this up today!
I had the most fantastic run yesterday. I’m still in week 6 which is a repeat of Thursday’s run. But I felt gooooood. And I knew my pace was faster, I was hitting turnings, houses ect sooner than last time, but most noticeably I was back at the village before I’d even finished my 2nd running stint. My ankles felt good, the only point they felt a little off was as I was pelting down the hill in the village, but it’s a steep hill and I’ll just avoid it in future, minimalist shoes, concrete and a steep incline just isn’t that comfortable! And I had to cut my cool-down walk short because I’d made it home, so I think maybe I need to work out a new route. Anyway it was quite clear that I’d maintained a faster pace but even still I was surprised when runkeeper informed me that I’d shaved a whole minute off my average pace, making it a 12.30 mile, which I’m pretty chuffed about considering it includes the walking periods so when I’m actually running I must be maintaining a pretty good pace!
I have been diligently tracking with MFP, everything I eat gets recorded, even if it’s not so good. However, I don’t think I’m using it quite the way intended...... I convert all uneaten calories to chocolate! I think I need to work on that, opps!
And so that this isn’t a completely photo-less post, I’ll include one of the lovely views from my run. It’s such a pretty area to run in but I never want to stop to take a photo, but I do need to get better taking photos!
