For someone who’s ‘not running’

1 Comment

I’ve done rather a lot of sprint intervals and best effort laps over the past few days!

This is a good thing because it’s giving me a taste for running fast again and has got me wondering if I’m getting back on form and should get out and test myself over a parkrun. Mojo is on it’s way back!

I was ‘wiser’ today after overheating yesterday. Today I left in shorts and vest! Thank goodness I didn’t ditch the waterproof because as I cycled down the road it started to rain. It rained all the way to BMF, through most of the class and all the way home. Oh well maybe I’ll get it right tomorrow.

I needn’t have worried about a new BMF location because out of the 9 of us who turned out in the rain for the third class at Ravenscourt Park I knew 4 others from Hyde Park. I also didn’t have to worry about the smaller park either. There weren’t big distances to cover but we explored the whole park which kept it interesting and we found plenty of room for sprints and circular paths for best effort laps. Plus all the usual press ups, dips, squats and lunges, of course

Day two. (Juneathon day 3)
1 hour BMF class (3 miles run) plus just under 5 miles cycling (multi-tasked with a shower on way home)
