…unless you fall over!
I fell over garr!! I calculated it added a whole minute to my kilometer!!! BOO!!
I was having a really lazy run and I wasn’t lifting my feet high enough to dodge tripping on a big fat rock sticking out of the ground!
I have a feeling it was because I boosted so hard in the 4th kilometer, because maybe if I boosted harder it would somehow make the 15min straight run go quicker therefore getting to my 1 minute walk faster. I must be high!! What the heck right…idiot!
See that little disgruntled “I got injured” face – yes that’s me! More because I was wasting time, and less because I might have skinned my knees! oh and btw Add me on Nike+ Running – http://nikeplus.nike.com/plus/profile/Janine_Tutbury/
I did not have my ‘smart’ hat on today, and I paid. Well I say I fell and am making it out to be all dramatic and bad, it wasn’t really, quite mild in fact and was wondering why I came off so lightly, no blood etc.
Amy and I ran on after dusting myself off, and 3-4 minutes later I told her we should have got a picture of the rock so I could blog it!! Quietly thinking that if I had a picture of this rock, then people would know I didn’t just fall over my own feet ha!
I think I also spent too much time looking around the estuary and not enough time looking at the ground. My mind set is if I spend too long running with my head down I get tired and feel like the run is going on for forever. I tried not to look down too much lol and I ass over! urgh! Amy thinks it was a silly idea haha
Meh! It didn’t stop me pushing on, and I was more worried about completing Week 10 – Day 2 of the Couch to 10k. I feel I must complete this day again because I stuffed up.
Over all we completed the App in 7.5-8km.
Week 10 requires you to warm up for 5 mins, run for 15mins and walk for 1 min, repeating the walk and run 3 times, then another 5 min warm down. Next week (week 11) requires a 17min run, 1 min walk, again repeating 3 times.
So far I have been surprised at my efforts on these runs using the app. I usually have to stop to walk around 7 or 8 times, which isn’t really running a 10km lol. Now this has been reduced to 3 or 4 times, and soon will be 2 or 3, then on to no stops! Exciting!!
We will get there team! And even though I realise this is a slow steady process, I always remember to appreciate how far I have come… Literally from the couch!!!
We will achieve that sub 1hour!!
Plenty tired today however we are on track for Calories in/Calories out and am feeling good!
Push on, Beast on,
Have a strong weekend Beasts!
