Activity this week:
2 sessions of interval training to get me back out in my trainers. Motivated along by my friends Julie Shand and Suzanne Fowler.
Wednesday 15th Jan – Session 1 – Warm up walk, followed by 2 minute jog, 3 minute walk x 4 reps = 20 minutes
Feeling a little bot apprehensive I rammed myself into my joggers and trainers. Walked from Julies house up to the next road as a warm up then we started. Would I being going to fast or even too slow to even get to the end of my first 2 minutes.
First rep was ok in that I mean it wasn’t too bad and definitely not as hard as it was when I tried to go alone. The 2nd rep was harder and the 3 rep completely lost my breath and took longer to get back breathing normally. 4th rep I was struggling and thought I wouldn’t make it BUT I DID! Whoop whoop. my running mantra just jumped back into my head…….. ‘Swimming, swimming, just keep swimming, what do we do we swim, swim’. Just got to love a bit of Dory singing to get you through.
The following day I felt fine until about 4pm then I did feel some twinging in my thighs. That evening I had spasms in my back enough to dream that I was going into labour in a pen of penguins. Strange but true.
Friday 17th Jan – Session 1 – Warm up walk, followed by 2 minute jog, 3 minute walk x 4 reps = 20 minutes
Walked from work towards Julies house with Suzanne and met up with Julie. Tonight’s Joglet as we like to refer to them was so much easier than Wednesdays I really felt like I was getting back into the swing of it. We are still doing the 2 minute Jog/3 minute walk until Wednesday when it ups to 3 minute jog/3 minute walk.
After Friday’s joglet I did feel very light headed so I need to make sure that I eat something before I go out next time.
My plan was to go out this weekend or if not latest is Monday evening so far its 6pm Sunday evening and I haven’t been out yet.
Plan for park run at the end of February. I need a Park Run t-shirt that’s my next goal.
I think these are my results from Park Run in 2012
