Excuses link here. I’m away from home for a couple of days, and was actually glad to get going after a lot of the day spent in the car.
Weather – Dry, soggy underfoot, dark at 5pm, but great street lighting.
Food – I want my tea, but it’s served here at 1845, so I have to wait. I am very very hungry!
AFO – not worn, trainers worn. Plasters over rubbed bits. Jury is concluding that if I wear AFO lots when not running, I can just about get away with running without it.
Route – Pavement alongside main road – the only flat route away from Gladstone Library.
Dogshit – nil. A huge shout out for the dog owners and walkers of Hawarden.
Number of cyclists – none
Number of runners – none, but several dog walkers and other people. Harwarden people smile back.
Number of people who said “hello” – three
Number of people who said “hello, oh hi Claire” – none (hurrah again)
Plan – follow Runkeepers very slow 20 minute interval plan with 5 min warm up. 60 s steady, 90 s slow.
How was it? Slower than Day 5 but felt a lot better. Confident even. All steady intervals significantly quicker than slow (but no hills!). Glad I did it.
Distance 1.66 miles; Total time 26:13 min; pace 15:46, but think GPS didn’t appreciate me starting it as I left my room, so tracking for first couple of mins is weird.
Back/hip pain – none, apart from being stiff from driving
Enjoyment – 9/10, too many cars, would have been 10/10.
Shower – was a bath. WIth the worlds most powerful shower attachment for hair washing. Plenty of hot water, but shower would have been better.
Smugness level – Off the scale. Currently inventing a new scale.
Clerical collar – not worn
