Week starting 7th December – new gear!
Tuesday 8th – Finally, got to test my new Adidas running shoes & kit! Rather cold outside but I couldn’t wait to get to the track. Happily, exactly as I was hoping, the gear had a strong psychological affect on me. I became a hard core runner, the REAL DEAL! I did 6K in 45 minutes. Yeah!
Thursday 10th – 5K in 38 minutes. Seem to be heading in the right direction. Weather wasn’t too cold. Ended up not needing gloves; stashed them in the back zip pocked of my fleece jacket – finally a use for that pouch! Varied speeds a bit and used the arm-pumping technique in parts.
Friday & Saturday off.
Sunday 13th – big run with Jorge. We did 17.5 laps around the track – 400 meters each = 7K in about one hour. Weather was extremely cold – not much higher than zero degrees in mid-afternoon. Had just the right amount of layers. Felt rather good for most of the event. Very pleased.
