I did my 4th ever run this afternoon. Usual routine: headed up to the local recreation ground, started up my Zombies, Run! mission, and set off on an alternate walk/run plan for 2 miles.
Some things were slightly different this time though. It was colder today, and damp, so the ground was muddy and I wasn’t sure how it would affect things. I changed my music playlist for this week as well and replaced a couple of tracks with things that were a little more dramatic in tone and pace (more in keeping with being chased by the zombie hordes, I thought).
Rather than run one whole side of the rec and walk the next, and so on, I’ve gradually got more into the routine of walking half a side and running the rest, as well as running whole sides. So, very gradually, I’ve been ramping up the amount of running.
I did my distance and I synced my app and checked my stats:
First ever run:
1.72miles; 14.33min/mi avg pace; 4.13mph avg speed
2.18miles; 12.03min/mi avg pace; 4.98mph avg speed
These zombies appear to be doing me good!
Oh, and as well as getting the Zombie app, I’ve also got the t-shirt!
Other milestone today was hitting 9st 8lbs, which is the lightest I’ve been for over a decade!
