Nice relaxing day today. Quick trip to the supermarket this morning with my fiance and son and then they dropped me off at the gym (yes I run on a treadmill a lot) for my long run session.
Firstly, I enjoy running on the treadmill because I a) get to watch tv b) zone out and don’t really notice what is happening. Time just flies past for me.
I promise I will be running outside a lot more as the weather warms up. I’m a fair weather runner, deal with it.
Long run today started off slowly because I was still feeling muscle pain in my right upper inner thigh from the speedwork done on Wed. I might have pulled a muscle there or something. I had to stop a couple of times in the first 5km or so just to stretch it out a bit. By the time I had covered 10km it was feeling okay.
Miles ticked by and I just listened to my iPod and watched the news on TV. It was great.
Covered 18km again at a 05:42 min per km pace (09:10 per mile).
I’ve now had my 1000mg of vitamin C and some lunch (as well as a couple of ibruprofen) and I’m chillin out with my family for the rest of the day.
I think I’ll have a look around on the inter-web for some other runs and running blogs. I’m recently facinated with reading about other people’s running experiences.
