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!
My review of the first three missions in the collaboration between Zombies, Run! and Call of Duty: WWII
Setting: Loop around my neighbourhood and surrounds Distance: 5.12 Km Time: 39:16 Average Pace: 7:40 /Km Tunes: Spotify Playlist: “Zombies, Run!” by RIAVEG8 (pretty good, but “Eye Of The Tiger”???!)
Feels: When I saw the new missions pop up for the Call of Duty: WWII collaboration, I was super excited for some vintage war-inspired scary runs!! Unfortunately, these new missions are just brought to you by the team at Call of Duty team. So they are less horrifying run through the woods in Nazi Germany being chased by Nazi-turned zombies, and more mission run.
I will be finishing the rest of the missions and do another run-log with my thoughts on the last two.
The Run: It feels good to be getting back into running, and even though my time hasn’t changed much, my stamina has! I look forward to building it back up to what it was after the 10k, but this kind of run is definitely getting me in the right direction.
My thoughts during:
Wearing new shorts was probably a bad idea.
These storm clouds look menacing
My legs are on fire
How did I use to do this?
Wow, I feel amazing
These shorts suck
Oh! Down-hill! This is nice!
Sunburnt legs are the worst
I’m so hungry!
and on and on and on..
