I went to the city to complete my long-run and .. I kinda didn’t finish it. Well … I did but didn’t, does that make sense? No, it doesn’t.
Sigh … I’m supposed to do a 45 minute run, right? Comprised of 10 minute runs and 1 minute walks until I complete the 45 minutes. Well … I managed to do 2 complete 10 minute runs (non-stop) and 1 x 10 minute run (with pauses – I told you I’m a wuss), and for the last 10 minute-run, I did a mixture of walks and runs because .. my stupid app could not recognise the new songs I put in my playlist AND I REFUSE TO RUN IN DEAD SILENCE. At least I could look forward to a bit of conversation when the app was running, but once the mission was completed – it was quiet.
However, I’m still semi proud of my achievement. I thought I wouldn’t even be able to finish 1×10 minute run considering my running schedule’s been shot and my longest run so far was for 5 minutes straight. Happy that I didn’t feel any pains and niggles. I think i could have done the whole 45 minutes if I had something pleasant to listen to, to keep my mind off the minutes I need to complete.
Bah… anyway, my stats.
See? I don’t think my workout was that bad. I still ran most of the way. Must do better next week. I hope its still 10 minute runs (though I have a funny feeling that Shaun’s scheduled 20 minute runs next week – Blech!).
PS. Now attempting to convert my DRM music to something the app would recognise. I hope this works otherwise I’ll be running to the Sound of Silence, and I’m not referring to the Simon and Garfunkel version.
