The aches and pains of the past couple of days were gone so by 8.30 this morning I was all kitted up and out the door. I chose a flat route, a mere 16 feet of elevation change according to mapmyfitness, and an easy run 1 minute/walk 1 minute 30 (12 times for a total of 30 minutes. I managed to cover 2.26 miles. I then spent another 25+ minutes on my post-run stretches, so hopefully the aches won’t come back to haunt me.
There’s been a downside to all this fitness stuff (strictly first world problem lol). My beloved “run addict” t-shirts, which used to be snug, are now impossible to get on. I leave to your imagination the fun and games involved trying to get one off again (if you do manage to get it on) after a good run session! So off to Absolute Running I go this morning.
All this exercising has changed my posture. I now stand tall with my shoulders back instead of stooped and round shouldered. When running I stride out more instead of shuffling along.
Now all I have to do is work out how to get water out of the little bottles on my water belt. I pulled up the valve-thing and sucked like a baby, barely getting a drop. In the end I took the lid off, during walk phases, and got my fill that way.
