Run 3: a brisk 5-minute walk, then 25 minutes of running with no walking.

Phyiso thinks he knows what the problem is and recommended exercises, but I'm not seeing any benefit yet.

Forgot my Garmin so today won't be logged there. Feet slightly better today - I tried to loosen the laces and also stretch more, so maybe one of those is helping.

30/oct/18-2

Got some running trousers that should fit in Run & Become. They're ordering me in a jacket that should hopefully fit from the Edinburgh branch. It is bright yellow.

30/oct/18

Brisk 5-minute walk, then 3 minutes of running, 1-and-a-half minutes of walking, 5 minutes of running, 2-and-a-half minutes of walking, 3 minutes of running, 1-and-a-half minutes of walking and 5 minutes of running.

Good: found my winter running kit and it did warm me up. Even in the cold it's nicer outside than in the gym.

Bad: it no longer really fits and needs replacing.

Also Bad: Having numbness problems again. I should try physio.

28/oct/18

A brisk 5-minute walk, then 2 repetitions of 1-and-a-half minutes of running, 1-and-a-half minutes of walking, 3 minutes of running and 3 minutes of walking.

I actually did go to the gym. I do not like the gym. I'm out of practice with gyms so I forgot my towel and had to walk home all cold and sweaty and shower at home.

The winter outdoor running gear was looking expensive but I might reconsider.

My calves are really tight. Park Hill park is not flat enough.

Static move

Bit of housekeeping. This blog is a bit dead, but moved it to static page rendering. Mainly that means no more comments and a different RSS/ATOM feed url.

Yes I know breaking URLs is bad :)

Walk in the Park

Went for a walk around Green Park. 19 minutes 45 seconds. A bit out of breath, I'm clearly in terrible shape!

[13:23] | []

Change of purpose (slightly)

This blog was always officially about my attempts to do running. I think I'll modify the "mission statement" slightly and try to chronicle my attempts at exercise more generally.

What's next?

Undecided at the moment. I've finished my 8 week plan that I've been doing for the last two months or so.

I want to start more exercise next year, but I'm undecided what to do. I'm not sure if I should go for building on what I've got and going for a half marathon again, or switching to the whole forefoot running thing. Or even doing something lower impact and less painful!
