Never before have I been silly enough to try running in horrible conditions like those today on the deserted windswept roads in Renwick Estate, battling against a ferocious westerly that almost blew me off my feet. I'm told it could be considered as a beneficial resistance workout. I think it was more like a waste of time. Funnily enough, it was called a Progression Run!
45 Minutes Progression Run … backwards, sideways & sometimes forwards! 15 minutes slow … no problems with that! 15 minutes normal … I don't think so! 15 minutes strong … failed that one! 5km Splits: 8:35; 8:35; 8:14; 8:10; 7:56
