Ready with a new battery in my Garmin foot pod, I hit the treadmill this morning. My great run the other day was unfortunatly followed by a very sore shoulder and back. I must admit I was a little nervous to run today. I didn’t want a repeat of the sore week I have had. I thought to myself, maybe I should not run, maybe I will start up again next week. But nope, I have been told it is ok to run by my doctors, so I stepped on the treadmill and off I ran. I repeated my run from earlier in the week. I promised myself I wouldn’t run anymore than 20 minutes. After about 10 minutes I decided to only run 15 minutes. I wasn’t feeling it. Then as it always does, the 15 minute mark hit and I found my stride, so I decided to push for 20 minutes.
Not a bad run by any means, but not a great run either. I managed to get up to 9mph speed on my treadmill. Because it took so long to get there It took me 20 minutes to complete 3 Kms. Not happy with that time at all.
If I keep at this pace I will be set to complete my Policeman’s half in April in 2 hours 38 minutes. This does not agree with my 2 hour 10 minute goal.
Must go faster!!!
20 minutes – 3km
