Oh my!

I went for a shuffle round the neighbourhood this morning, choosing to ditch the fixed “run x/walk y, repeat z times” schedule for a “run and walk as required until had enough” schedule.  Without trying I got my best average mph over 2 miles – 4.67!  Still postively sedentary as running goes but to me it’s as good as an Olympic gold medal.  The longest run stint was 0.3 miles and I managed to repeat that here and there.  Again, not exactly setting the running world alight but enough to give me a smile.

I think I will stick to the more relaxed run/walk sessions, rather than the fixed.  Why?  After doing some thinking I realised that when I do the fixed stuff I tend to get running-related injuries.  When I do the relaxed stuff I don’t get anything like as many (though the score’s about even on injuries preventing running due to non-running related ones).  So I’m going to listen to my body more and follow its lead.
