Intervals in the sunshine for me today – 7 lots of 400m with 90 seconds recovery. Add on a mile warmup, and a mile or so to get back home makes it into a respectable 4.87M in 52:51
Seeing how sunny it was, I took my little handheld water bottle with me. I haven’t used this for many months as it feels very strange to carry it whilst running. I’ve been trying to think about my ‘form’ whilst running recently, and today I could feel how off balance out made me feel. My solution? Find a hedge to hide it in until I’d finished the intervals.
On my way back home, sipping my tree-cooled water, I couldn’t resist stopping by the village pond to take some photos of the oh-so-cute ducklings. So fluffy, and so used to people feeding them that they run towards you as you approach, cheeping piteously. Don’t be fooled – these ducks are some of the best fed in Wiltshire!
As well as the intervals, another couple of hours were spent up at the allotment, and I managed a 1 minute plank whilst waiting for the shower water to heat up. Go me!
