Monday 19th August: 8kms + drills

Today I drove down to my old gym carpark to start my run. "Why?" you may ask. Well, it's because yesterday when I cleaned out the shed and Adam's old room, I purged a lot of stuff I no longer need. There is a charity bin in the gym carpark so I put all the bags in there whilst I waited for the satellites to connect to my watch. Multi-tasking at its best!

When I woke up this morning, I have to admit to having a green nose. TMI?? But I'm glad I ran because I feel better now :) I ran 2k to the local oval and did my drills. Then I ran an easy 6ks after. I really think the drills are helping because I'm not feeling the terrible quad pain I used to get all the time. We have changed the way I run, focusing more on tilting my pelvis forward. This activates and uses my glutes and hamstrings more. It also forces me to run more upright and less hunched. Yes, my normal running style is pretty ugly!!!! Everything just hurts less when I run in my new style.

Speed work tomorrow! I always get nervous for the harder work because I know it will hurt! How do you feel about speed work?
