Sunday was my third run since injury, so I headed for the field again to warm-up. I warmed-up and waited for my Garmin to lock on to the satellites. It didn’t. Never mind I thought, I’ll do one of those naked runs, so I set off. After a couple of minutes the lure of running on the streets was too strong and I left the field to head into town.
I glanced down at my watch and saw that my watch had finally found locked on to the GPS satellites so I started my watch and carried on. It felt good running through the streets again and I felt ok, I did wonder how much CV fitness I’ve lost over the inactive weeks but it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be.
My watch beeped as I finished the first mile, and took the opportunity to do a 30 second walk. The second mile went by with no bother and I finished my run where I started. A nice long cool down followed by some stretching and that was me done.
I was pleased with my splits too, but I’m not getting carried away, I’ve got a long way to go.
