Despite the fiasco last Tuesday that resulted in me wandering around like a fool, today I made it to my training course with The David Lloyd Redway Runners. It was very hard work but it was also great!
The course is run by Nicky, a brilliantly supportive lady who I found very approachable and knowledgable. She was joined by another great lady from the DLRR called Annie.Today’s session was intervals of 3 mins running then 3 mins walking x 3 and boy was it tough! I did just about manage it but I did fall behind the others a bit so Annie hung back to run with me. We ran along part of the route for the Milton Keynes Parkrun, it’s a beautiful area that goes alongside the canal and through woodland. I will try to get pics next time. Thank you to everyone for your support…who knew hard work could be so much fun!
It was so nice to run as part of a larger group…I enjoyed it a lot and can’t wait for next week. I have a feeling training this week is going be tough but as always I will give it my best shot.
