Running Diary, Week 2, Run #1…

So, into week 2 of just over 3 weeks of preparation for the DHL Relay… and this week I am trying to increase the distance I can run…

I set off and chose a different route today – I ran around a different block of about the same length, but at a much slower pace… It was a really lovely evening to run tonight with the air pleasantly warm, the sun out and the iPod kicking out some nice rhythmic techno 😀

I did my circuit and I was feeling really good… so I stopped for a stretch of the calves and ran the block I ran last week.  So I managed to run 3km in total – double my distance from last week!  The best part is that my legs are not hurting that much and I feel great!

Actually the only downside today was that I was overtaken by someone twice my age and speed … I must look silly when I am running!

I reckon I could have carried on but I didn’t want to push it, so I think next time I’ll run the same route and see how I feel.  But today was a great day and I hope that I can continue in this way so I can make my goal of being able to run the 5km relay! 😀

Hi there! I’m a mad keen F1 fan who has been addicted to the sport for 20 years. I watch every race and follow the sport in every way I can. I have a keen interest in numbers and I would like to analyse the races from a statistical point of view to see if the data shows something we can't see on TV. As always, I’d love to hear what you think and especially if we can discuss my analyses that would be great – but please no nasty stuff!
