And you know what – it was not planned!
It was a very cold morning and there was a lot of frost and ice about so I decided to wait until mid morning to head out to complete some interval training with my #GetMoov coach.
I noticed about 2K in the it was getting grey and as I hit the 4th of 5 intervals the wind picked up and it started to rain – it was not very long before this became a driving force, whipping straight for my face and before you knew it, it had turned to snow.
I slowed after the 4th interval to asses the situation but decided there was not cause for concern as the ground was too wet and it looked like a snow shower.
I increased the intensity of my trainer and hot the 5th interval with whatever energy I had left and then finished with a short slower pace to get me to 3K.
Reading my results back from GetMoov is encouraging because even with the interval training, slowing my pace mid etc I am getting some good cadence which is something I always strive for.
It’s encouraging that my investment in this wonderful Kickstarter project has paid off – I wasn’t sure I believed the claims of Moov but it really does seem to work – and it keeps me motivated, which above all in winter, is all that really matters 😉
Anyway I seemed to be hitting the ground hard in the last interval and GetMoov has proven this to be the case – I think I simply wanted to get to the end of that session and knowing I had increased the difficulty I was driving my legs too hard on the ground. I must work on this.
I then headed back to the warmth and comfort of the house.
I was pleased I had taken the initiative to wrap up well and had included a Buff wrapped as a headband to cover my ears, my cap was on top and I wore my bluetooth headphones too – all of which helped me feel comfortable mid run.
Thankfully today I had thought ahead and there was plenty of hot water to warm me back up 🙂
I hope you all like the new look and feel 😉
