One Down, Goodness Knows How Many To Go

Well, I completed my first run in almost two months a wee while ago. And do you know what? It wasn't so bad. My initial fears of hour-plus runs didn't bear out. Instead, I completed it in 49:41. I thought I'd just as well go the whole hog and attempt the full 10km, and I'm glad I did.

Feel absolutely knackered though, and I'm playing fives in under two hours. Eek!

I should note that I use the Nike+ system, which is how I know my distance, time, and (rather interestingly) how many calories I've burned (807). This comes in useful, as when I set my 44:31 record at Grangemouth I was only about 11st 7lbs. I'm now 12st 8lbs so I would like to lose a bit of fat.

I've published the route I did on MapMyRun - not sure if I'm going to do this all the time, but if you're interested then you can see the route I did. Note that MapMyRun has this route down as 9.79km. I'm aware that using the Nike+ system has a bit of inaccuracy, but MapMyRun doesn't take into account crossing roads, circling round people walking dogs and such so I'm pretty sure it's really close to 10km.
