It’s been a while since I’ve written anything, mainly due to laziness and busyness. I was out on my long run on Sunday morning (more on that later) and I was thinking that it would be good to write a little about what’s gone down over the last few weeks.
The Frome 10k (along with the 5k and Half Marathon) was a couple of weekends ago. Going into the race I was thinking that a PB would be possible – the last few months have been the largest block of sustained running I’ve ever done, and I was injury free. I had checked out the course on Strava beforehand and thought it looked fairly flat. Strava lied! The course was very hilly, not so much in terms of actual elevation gained, but the hills were very steep in places.
Yay for running materialism!
My trusty Garmin Forerunner 10 has served me pretty well over the past couple of years, but it has never quite been the same since I smashed it up after my dramatic Cardiff Half 2015 wipeout – both the strap and the usb connector have been a bit suspect ever since.
I’ve been on the lookout for a replacement for a while, and finally settled on the Garmin Forerunner 235. I went for it primarily for the in-built heart rate monitor on the wrist, and also because of the larger screen allowing me to see more information on the go at once. I asked Anna to buy it for me for my birthday, and now it is in my possession!
