Yes today I ran on three separate occasions, each time with a member of my family.
- This morning I did intervals (with myself) in the dark. I am sure the village has an idiot already and as I don’t really want a new job I make sure I do intervals before most people have risen from their beds. My intervals were 1/2 mile warm up, 1/4 fast as you can to the red car, collapse, 1/4 mile recover back, repeat four times. (Not helped by owner of red car taking it to work half way through!) 1/2 mile cool down. 3 miles
- This afternoon tempo session with Madam. As far as I can make out tempos are longer intervals but am open to any correction on this. 1/2 mile warm up which was meant to be a gentle jog (Madam come back Madam wait for me!) 1/2 mile run with effort but not flat out (Madam come back Madam wait for me!) repeat twice. 2 miles
- This evening first run with hubby. (those of you that know him stop laughing NOW) Hubby requested running kit for Christmas which I duly purchased wrapped and placed under the tree along with a parkrun barcode! (Pushing my luck I think) The kit was unwrapped, laughed at by members of the family who witnessed the unveiling and then buried in the bottom of the wardrobe. At the weekend hubby announced he would run Sunday with Madam and Monday with me. Rain stopped play yesterday, but despite my doubts he came home tonight raring to go (this might be an exaggeration) It was a slow run, we did not speak much, in fact if I did not know any better I would swear we had had a row! Not sure he will come out again but we did 1.5 miles.
Now the rounder upper in me wants to go out and do 1/2 a mile to make in 6 miles today, but 4 runs in one day would be madness. No tonight I shall recline on the sofa with Usain Bolt, the other runner in my life!
