…watching the clock. I don’t often time my runs. As Jon Richardson says, there are two types of people in the world, “putters” and “leavers”. To find out which you are, answer this simple question: “Where are your car keys?”. Mine are where I left them. My husband’s, if he drove (probably a rant for another time), would be where he’d put them. But I digress.
I don’t often time my runs. As a leaver, getting out for my run always takes a fair amount of time. After I’ve remembered where I left my trainers, where I left my mp3 player, where I left my gloves, where I left my hat, where I left my house key, where I left my bus ticket and where I left my will to go running, it’s usually about half an hour later than I planned. So adding in a watch and a heart rate monitor is a complication too far.
But today, in response to comments from fortnightflo and fitographer, I dug out said watch and heart rate monitor and set off on my 7.5km run. And the verdict was…59mins. Is this good? Is this bad? Don’t know, don’t care. It felt interminable, and I’m definitely going to be doing a short recovery run tomorrow. 🙂
PS I finished knitting my cat.
