Third run

Another ten minute outing. Not drizzling, for a change. Remembered to do stretching before setting off. Thought I'd try two minutes running and one minute walking, but it soon became apparent that I wasn't quite ready for this, so reverted to 1.5/1. However, got as far as outside 31 Highfield Avenue, so that's some sort of progress.

Second run

Another ten minute outing at 6.40, again in the drizzle, this time running for a minute and a half, walking for a minute. Same route, got as far as outside number 23 Highfield Avenue. Probably ran a little more slowly this time, and felt more comfortable. Not so much of an endorphin rush this time, but still felt pretty good.

Labouring in the fields

Although a rest day for running, I spent much of the day clearing scrub and banging in fenceposts at a nature reserve near Soham, as part of i2's Make A Difference programme

First run

Ten minutes jogging. Well, actually about half that - a minute jogging, a minute walking. I was probably trying to run a little bit too fast, though that was still pretty slowly. And my legs were protesting a little bit, but nothing particularly painful. I went down Redfern Close, round the back of Arbury Court, and part-way down Highfield Avenue. By the end I was sweating profusely, but I felt absolutely fantastic for the rest of the morning - the endorphins kicking in, no doubt. The shoes were very comfortable.

During the three weeks from Monday 4 July, I did twenty minutes walking every other day, as recommended here. However I got a bit bored of this, and decided to follow this programme instead. The first stage is to go jogging for ten minutes every other day. So on Monday 25 July I got up at 6.30am and went running in the drizzle at 6.40.
