Due to work commitments, so far all my runs have been in the evening. Today however, I was able to experience what it is like to be a morning runner.
To begin with I wasn't really sure it was for me. Perhaps it is that running later in the day my legs have had chance to warm up, or at least move a bit. For the first run/jog bit I really wasn't feeling it.
I had done some stretching, but clearly not enough, my knees were tight, by legs felt heavy, every step seemed like a struggle - and we were only on the first mile!
Mrs C was encouraging and we had our first goal to get to before the walking bit, it seemed to take forever. After a short walk the next run/jog was already a bit easier, clearly more warming up will help.
Whilst we have been out doing this route, there is one area I have tried to push myself on, it is at the half way point and involved, initially running between 2 bridges. Gradually I have extended the distance, and today managed to run form the entrance to the park (prom) all the way to the entrance past the second bridge.
Now this is still a long way of 26.2 miles but is still the longest I have run without stopping. Little goals and tick them off as you get them.
Battling with technology this morning, phone recorded my achievement but watch and phone have clearly fallen out and are not talking to each other at present.
What tech do you use when running?
After 24 years of helping others to achieve their running goals - it is now my time.
