Sunday run: Back to basics

지난달

I just finished a 10.527km run that lasted about 1hh:4mm:29ss !

I had not run since my half marathon last weekend, so it was time to get back to it. It was a bit of a late night for me last night, but I woke up anyway and decided to get out. It was a little misty with some trees dripping on me, but not too cold. I went for my usual loop of Arlesey > Fairfield > Stotfold. Not many other runners out today. I was generally feeling okay, but my left hip was playing up a bit again. It did this on the race, It is not actually painful, but I can just feel something going on there. I will monitor this and see a doctor if it deteriorates. I am not a young man any more and some bits of me are wearing out. I just hope the benefits of running outweigh any damage it does.

My next event may be a 5km around Letchworth town centre next month. They are also doing a mile race just afterwards, so I may do that too. I will see if my kids will run too.

Run free!

I got out both Saturday and Sunday and did a walk with @mrsbozz and Jovi. It only amounted to about 4300 steps each time, but I still feel like it was close to two miles. It was a little chilly both mornings so we had to wear our sweatshirts.

I've got another outing from yesterday that I want to post. It was a busy weekend. Came back to work for a rest.

You have uploaded 2 running activities, and 1 of them have been of similar distances (within 10 percent)!
Here are your 5-fastest running activities of a similar distance:

Over these 1 similar activities, you have travelled approximately 10.53 kms at an average pace of roughly 6:7 min/km!
Your latest run was at a pace of approximately 6:07min/km!
Looks like you went a bit slower this time! Remember that it's important to take some rest days, and do some rehab / prehab / strength and conditioning training too!

There are no excuses for a consistent runner, you just have to adapt yourself to the conditions of your surroundings with the available resources.

You’re a healthy man that’s for sure:P and still young im telling you!;)
May I ask what’s the running app you use ?:)

·

I may be older than you think :) I use Endomondo. It has some issues with the max pace it shows, but I have used it for years and so it has all my stats

Thanks a bunch! Will use it for my future runs 😍

Oh snap:( Does it cost money? Cuz It just said that I can start my 30 days free trial:(

I do pay $20/year for it for some extra features, but I think you can use it for free

Oh oki thanks so much for the info!:) Out of curiosity, may I ask what are the extra features you get with 20$/year?

You lose ads, can create training plans and you get more stats, but I think it is still usable anyway. These apps can be better if you have friends using the same one, but I don't know anyone using Endomondo. When I was looking for an app some years ago this was on special offer (like 10c) and I have used it ever since out of habit.
