First 1 hour run in a while

So, after a chat with Coach in the time-to-run forum I agreed to instead running every 2nd day and for a whole hour instead of every day. This to still let the body recover sufficiently. On the morning to Monday, when I came home from work, there were heavy rain, so I went to sleep instead and went out running around 2:30 p.m. instead. Unfortunately that wasn’t much better, since it was a quite hot day. But I did my hour. I felt a little sore in the thighs even before – maybe because of the two runs in a row the past two days. It was tough, both that and the heat, but I made it through and only followed my body – never looking at the watch. That’s why it was a little slower than before too. But it felt good. And, I just remembered, I used heel pads I bought on Taobao (Chinese ebay) for 12 yuan (approx 2 USD). Very good investment. I don’t know if they helped, but I didn’t have any niggles today either. They were comfortable to run with at least 🙂
