Did my first session of my Up & Running course this evening. And interesting combination which saw me relieve the skipping along the foreshore was over and I could just go back to running ;)
Covered 8km using a combination of walking, running, jogging and skipping. Was fun, but will head out a little earlier next time, ended up walking home in the dark! I’ll also wear my newer shoes, not my worn out sad old shoes. They’re okay for walking, but NOT for the running. Felt the impact on my left foot while skipping along!
Oh and I have to say my new phone arm band (scored off ebay for $8 including postage) is awesome. Even has a sneaky little key pocket. Score!
How is this not a plan? I have a few trips to the Central Coast and Sydney for appointments, Lady Gaga, and the Good Food and Wine Show… and maybe even seeing Ms Glowless to boot :) Do some running and bootcamp in there, then fly to Hobart for the Speech Pathology Australia conference, armed with gloves, hats and scarves, and running shoes, to find my speechie mojo and to see the lovely Foaleladies :)
Wow! I won a 10k training course with Up and Running from Shauna @ Dietgirl… just the kick this girl needs to get back to her running that she’s been putting off for so long!
Yes, I can already run 10k (above is a pic from the MS fun run in sub zero temperatures in Canberra last year!), but this is a chance to get my time down (aiming for under an hour) and to psyche myself into tackling a half-marathon! (and get me on track for the City2Surf in August)
Totally will be posting about this here, but if you want to join me in the 10k course, it starts on June 14, with the 5k version starting Monday 11th June. Head over to Up and Running to find out more about the program.
