My first session was on Monday, a gorgeous frosty morning. I'm not sure what I expected of myself, but I think I realised how little cardio fitness I currently have! I could probably walk the Pub2Pub tomorrow with no worries, but this Flinders 5 caper is going to take some work.
My saving grace is that the walk/run loop I have is a perfect length, reasonably flat, and rather scenic. The other bonus is that my only spectators are magpies, a sea eagle, and seven sheep. I need all the distraction I can get when running because usually my brain is too busy listening to my legs complaining. And complain they did: the beeps signalling the end of each run minute only just arrived in time.
Anyway, I managed to survive the Week 1 session without too much soreness, and even followed it up with a 3hr beach walk later in the day.
Ahh, surely this is paradise!
