Ok so one of my first runs was to work, this would be easier to run to the in-laws after work than take my bike etc as there was no room, nor the cycle rack was available.
So how did I do?
Not too bad, started off very fast which I think shows my in experience currently but of course that will change as I become fitter and also better understand how to run.
I have a backpack which I use for my cycling commutes, has enough space plus the added bonus I can add my water bladder to it also when required, so knowing that I run hot and like to take on fluids I ran with around 2 litres of water on my back along with my change of clothes (I leave my work trousers over the back of my chair during the week) and some lunch.
I didn’t do too bad, but was more annoyed that the route I took, most direct, didn’t allow me to rack up my 5k mark. Hey you live and learn.
The evening route was shorter and very flat so was a nice change, but the next day I did start to feel it. I didn’t warm down very well at all and suffered for it, again something to put down to the steep learning curve that comes with running and finding out how your body can do.
Will I do it again, yes I would, lets see if I do.
