Week 3. Running Diary Day 9
Yes! I hit my target of 5K. One week early too.
It was tough at one point when it went uphill for a good while.
I decided to head a route that I've never been to before, it was such a beautiful day. Bright blue sky, little wind...warm! I live by a golf course called Nigg Bay, the route to and around the course is 5K. Excellent.
I stupidly didn't take my water bottle with me. Having only started running three weeks ago, I never needed it. It was cold and icy back then, but today the sun was shining, and I was pretty dehydrated by the time I got home.
I recently joined the gym too. I went a long time between outdoor runs due to having to go to work. I'm not a morning person so can't seem to get out of bed before I have to leave for work (lazy!).
I joined a 24/h gym, and find it easier to "workout"..basically run on the treadmill after work, sometimes at midnight.
I'm impressed by my progress! I never thought I'd enjoy running. It's still a chore having to put my gear on and head out, but once I'm out I feel fine.
I really hope the weather stays like this was a while. It was a beautiful day and it definitely is nicer to run in warmer weather.
'till next time,
