Bonza day ~TJ104

I had a really good day today. AND I even followed suggestions from he who gives instructions, suggestions and great advice (which I ignore from time to time he he he )

Lead the walking group and one of the walkers had a great achievement she walked 2.34 miles today! Her first walk on 14th September was 0.25 miles. We celebrated with hot chocolates in the park cafe.

When that all finished I went for a run round the Parkrun route, when I say run I mean of course, ralk – run/walk. I went from finish line to finish line, there was no goal for pace, time, anything – just do it was the advice, so now we have a baseline figure to build on.

While walking around I was conscious of the beauty all around me, autumn is my favourite season, I love the colours and you can see the character of the trees when they are bare of leaves.

Fartlek – I love it ~TJ62

Apparently my haphazard training has a name – Fartlek – this comes from Sweden and I love it, did that on Wednesday and did some hill running intervals tonight. I promised Steve that I would do a Parkrun (properly) in September so am sort of training for that,

I am enjoying the testing of my body and spirit, and exploring the different types of training and running that there are, great fun indeed and a good sense of achievement.
