A Run In The Sun.

It’s been ages since I really could not be bothered going for a run but needs must. It didn’t help that the sun was shining, it was beautiful and warm, people were sitting relaxing outside pubs and aromas from people cooking dinner where wafting everywhere. A Bisto kid moment!

Begrudgingly I got changed.Sitting down after work before a run is never a good idea. Time to go! It wasn’t going to be a big run and we aimed for a quick six miler. The pace was comfortable for the most part. The run seemed to go in phases today of feeling comfortable and lacking in energy. In my head I split the run into sections to urge me on. This seems to work and before I knew it we were on the last leg. This section, of course, seemed to go on forever.

Distance: 5:68 miles; Time: 49:17; Calories: 731; Avg. min/ml: 08:40


About klayire

In 2012 I completed my first ever marathon and raised £1843.96 for Alzheimer Scotland (Action on Dementia). Unfortunately I gained an injury. Initially thought to be IT Band I carried on running only to develop further injuries. By the time I crawled through the door of a private physio I had squint and twisted hips (this surely halves my marathon time as I clearly did double the distance with my snake hips!) , achilles tendonitis and shin splints. I was told there would be NO running for at least 5 months. The good news...back to running after 4 months; the not so good news...as I'm straightened out further issues are appearing. But with the promise of being fixable I'm determined to get back to full fitness and run an ultramarathon. Yes Mr Physio, "with that knee!" I did however promise not to do this next week but have this as a future goal as he realised that..."you mean it don't you!" May 2011 Position: 5065. Time: Full marathon: 4 hours 15 mins 07 secs; 10k: 54 mins 06 secs; Half marathon: 1 hour 54 mins 44 secs; 30k – 2 hours 45 mins 30 secs.
