Notes: The important thing is that I DID NOT run into a concrete bollard this morning.
That, my friends, is definite progress.
My hip is still a little sore after my previous running faux pas (seriously guys, concrete bollards are bloody solid and strangely enough don’t have much ‘give’ when you collide with them!), but it doesn’t appear to be particularly affecting my mobility. Hopefully the soreness will disappear over the next few days.
I lost 15 seconds at the end of the third mile/beginning of the 4th whilst waiting at a crossing and then another 5 seconds doing a lace up - you’d think that at my age I might be able to tie laces properly! Neither would make a massive difference to the overall pace, but I guess it’s good to know that I could be a little quicker without putting more effort in.
Of course the reality is that I need to put the extra effort in: I need to get faster and fitter, and I need to get both quickly.
Let’s go to work.
