Reluctantly, because it was so cold and windy, I forced myself back to a running session this morning, the first since Jim passed away, a little over four weeks ago. Since then I've been walking with my two little dogs twice each day, and today I felt it was time to try and get myself back on track. And track it was at Chev. where I did my first session. I've started with the FIRST 15km program, three running sessions each week (Track, Tempo Run & Long Run) and two days cross training.
It was miserable at Chev with a strong cold wind blowing across the field so I made some changes to shorten the session which was also miserably slow.
Program: 10-20 min warm-up
10 x 400m @ 5:37m/k
10 min cool-down
What I did:
10 min warm-up and couple of strides
5 x 400m in a very slow 6:01; 5:54; 6:00; 5:53; 5:57
No cool-down; I was freezing.
If I achieved nothing else, a start has been made.
