To start with I wanted to know what the time was so pressed the button on my Garmin but pressed the wrong one. I not only managed to stop the timer but managed to reset the lap counter.
I got past this and was doing very well on my final stretch when I ran past someone I knew – for some mad reason I decided to slow down to say hello – why!?
The best thing about tonight’s run is that even though we had gale force winds I was determined to get another 6K under my belt.
I was actually so focussed on that that I forgot all about my shoes which confirms my suspicions that the New Balance trainers are no good for me. I think there is wear in my Nikes but they did me proud this evening so I shall revert to running with those.
I met my mate for lunch today and he helped put my mind at ease about my training for the Richmond 10K – as he always does. He’s right in so much that I should not try too much now as I will over train and that if I increase at least a kilometre a week now I will be fine before I have to taper and run the actual race.
It’s all about self-confidence and commitment at the end of the day. As Paul said I have run much further and I have run the race route before so there should not be anything to worry about as long as I don’t over train.
My plan for this week is two more 6Ks – possibly increasing one to 7K, I shall then run a couple of those next week and taper off.
Thanks to those who responded re my dumb question yesterday – I think my Nikes are fine for now, I shall continue to run with these and see how I get on. I think there is a few more miles left in them :)
Why not connect with me on Garmin Connect?
