I ran naked today – well not really! I ran pretty much without any tech… I cannot use my Moov yet as I have not managed to get an arm band for my iPhone 6. I don’t like running without my phone but as I have sent my iPhone 5 back to Apple I have no choice.
I have not run all week as I have not felt like it. My back was sore last weekend so I spent the first half of the week using my TENS machine to help sort that out – that and some rest seemed to do the trick.
Unusually I mentally did not feel like running as there was no drive or energy to get out and put my shoes on. I was even sent some new shoes to test and that could not convince me to get laced up.
I’m now where near over the passing of Brandy even though I convinced myself I was. Getting back to the normal work routine highlighted a number of things and I have found myself in some very dark places this week.
I ran past the house tonight and looked up at the kitchen window for Brandy – she used to watch me run. It hurt when I realised she won’t be watching me anymore. 😦
I really wanted to do at least one run today because I had the time as Richard was out on a golf day all day. The weather came in earlier and it was terrible but thankfully it cleared and I managed to run a short 3K.
The new trainers were really interesting and not something I would normally try but they were fun to run in and gave me plenty of bounce.
I didn’t push too hard, I was simply happy to have completed a run this week.
Keep an eye on the blog for the review of the trainers once they have been published on the official web site 😉
Check out the run on Garmin Connect (yes I did wear my watch but that was to see how I did with the new trainers – I did not look at it once during the run).
