miCoach run 1
I can’t work out if running with Graham today was an aid or a hindrance. I scored 95% on today’s run, and I came out of it barely out of breath. I was holding back a little for the entire run and would have liked to push a little harder — and run a little longer — but I was aware that Grah was pretty much at full capacity. And miCoach kept yelling at me to slow down. I wonder how frustrated James gets when he runs with me?
Running up at the Lygon st Cemetery is definitely the way to go. It’s 1.5km each way, and 3km around, with smooth flat paths. I have a 50-minute run scheduled for Monday morning so I will do two laps and hopefully do the full 9km, although I reserve the right to walk after I’ve run the full 50 minutes.
I don’t understand how I ever stopped running. I am finally returning to that point where it’s fun — where it’s what I do. I know it’s easy in the summer, with my early-rising and late starts at work, but I don’t want to lose this habit again. I really lost sight of myself in April last year, when I let issues at work and a should-have-been-over-years-ago relationship take over — I stopped yoga, stopped running, stopped the gym, and hibernated most of the winter… It’s taken over 10 months to get back here!
