I really felt I needed at least 10 days off and last week I didn't even want to think about running. From Monday onwards I was looking forward to getting going again but I'm glad I kept to the 10days.
I ran at lunch time with a colleague Ivonne. She was keen to do a steady easy pace which was great for me.
We did a 6mile loop from Bellahouston Park through Pollok Park and back. I have decided for a while to not worry about pace and time and just have my watch set to distance.
So here is what my garmin is set to ...
We'll see how it goes but I'm keen to get more of a feel to my running and not worry too much about pace for a while.
I also went back to Run-4-it and bought another pair of trail shoes. They had a good deal whereby you get £20 off a second pair if you buy them within 30days of the first purchase.
I went for a pair of Inov-8 Terroc ....
I'm planning to use these for the Devil o' the Highlands Race.
One of things I've decided to do is to change my training a bit. So I'm going to do some cross training rather than running every day. Glasgow council is running a 'cycle to work' scheme which means I can buy a new bike 40-50% off.
I'm looking at getting a decent road bike either a Trek or Giant. My friend Grant is going to have a look with me tomorrow and give me some advice. So I'm planning to do some more cycling.
