Saturday Run Log: Getting back into it

Today was one of those perfect Canberra days: a slight breeze, and sunshine from 6am til 7pm. Unfortunately for me, I am at the tail end of the semester and have had four assignments due in one week.
So after submitting three of my assignments throughout the week, and with one to go, I decided to go for a run!

Setting: Local run around the neighbourhood
Distance: 5.01km
Time: 36:01
Average Pace: 7:11 /Km

Tunes: Spotify Playlist: “Zombies, Run!” by RIAVEG8 (Continued with this one, and surprisingly, it got better! 70’s rock makes running ok)

Continued with the Zombies, Run! missions released with Call of Duty and this episode had some more interesting parts to it, though it was still less exciting than I’d hoped, I’ve decided to persevere through them since I’d already started.

The Run
: It felt nice to get out of the house and into the sunshine. We’ve been AirBnb’ing our spare room, so I’d spent most of the day preparing the house for a new guest and listening to lectures. It was nice to get out into the sunshine. My lungs didn’t start burning straight away, and it was good to stretch my legs after the run yesterday, which left my glutes and hammies pretty tight!

Thoughts during:

  • I’m glad I put on sunscreen
  • Doubling up on the sports bra was a good idea
  • Tights will always will v. shorts for running
  • Eating lunch was another good idea
  • Eff me it’s hot
  • Should have thought about hydration
  • How far have I gone??!
