Attempted A “Long Run”

I know that the last post I had was quite positive. Unfortunately that happiness did not last to long. Today the weather was nice 12 degrees Celsius so I wanted to try and run slightly further, anywhere between 12-14km. The first 5km went fairly well and then downhill from there. everytime I stopped running I could really feel the pain in my right hip. By 11km I was struggling to walk like a normal human being. I really wanted to try and get to 12km today but it just was not in the cards today. That is ok though there is always next time. It was nice to see people going out for walks and bike rides with their families. Made it a little more difficult to maintain the 2 meter rule but I tried my best.

So todays run ended off with a 11.58 km run at a modest pace of 5.33min/km. Please keep in mind that I paused the tracker to stretch every km after 5km. So this pace is not true prob closer to a 5.55 or 6min per km pace if you factor in the pauses. Ran them in my Clifton 6. Going to continue my resistance band routine like last week and hope that things will get better.

Thanks for reading everybody, please continue to physically distance yourself and I know times are tough right now, but lets try to find the beauty in the little things to make the days better.

Stay happy, Stay healthy and Keep breathing
