Monday 14th July: Short Road Run

Distance: 4.01 Miles Time: 43:29 (Positively slug like)

Having been ill for over a week including having three days off work my training plans for this month have been completely blown apart, which is just typical really. I wanted to go out for a run to get the "first run" back out of the way and I needed to get out of the house for a bit, the two days I was working I was at home avoiding other people's sniffles. It did help me recover a bit but I was sick of being indoors with no-one but the cat to talk to.

I thought I would try to keep my HR as low as possible, at the very least under 150bpm. I nearly managed it but I can't believe how slow I had to run to achieve it - think I averaged 11 mm which is quite possibly one of my slowest runs ever. I ran along the tramway for a bit then back up along Leyland Road then home via Brownedge road at such a slow speed I thought I was running on the spot. I won't be repeating that in a hurry as it was a) bloody boring and b) I think I changed my gait to keep it that slow as the next day my hips were very stiff and odd feeling. I should've just tried to run a bit faster.

As I am coming back from illness I will be resting for a day before either getting out on the bike or going for another run on Wednesday.
