Sunday morning is usually ringing, but this week we’re a bit short on numbers, so a that fabulous luxury of a Sunday morning lie in was enjoyed. The alarm clock didn’t go off until gone 8; which might not sound like a lie-in, but it is when you consider the alarm clock on Monday goes of before 6 am. Then, after he vanished off to the station, I vanished out the door for another run. The spell of warm weather is continuing, with this morning being warm and a bit overcast. There was a bit of a breeze and it was quite nice out.
Nothing especially exciting to report of the run itself. I stepped up to a 1 minute run followed by 1 minute walk. The run segments were no longer than last week, but reducing the duration of the walk breaks makes it that little bit harder overall. And so it proved. I made it on the outward leg without too much trouble, but on the return it did start to feel slightly tougher. The walk breaks slowed down a bit and it was getting harder to start each time. Not helped by a fellow runner who came past me just towards the end of a walk break looking as cool and unbothered as a pink clad cucumber. Actually just as I was considering making that walk break longer than one minute but that thought vanished and I set off again in her wake. However, I did forego the last walk break and run home from the roundabout for the last 2 minutes. It always feels good to finish strong and not crawl in to the finish.
The one thing I have managed to do is, somehow, to change something on my Garmin or the Connect page such that it is no longer showing pace as a graphic. It’s showing me elevation, which is not the most interesting statistic – apart from the slight aberration which means I seem to climb 18 meters and descend 14, all while starting and finishing in the same place. Not sure quite how that works, but hey ho. I just need to work out how to get the technology to do what I want it to and we’ll be fine.
