Running | 38.40

Very cold, grey and icy today. There was a thick frost on the ground all day, in places it looked like snow! My legs didn't warm up the whole time :-( When I got to the harbour, there were sheets of ice floating on the surface of grey water, and there was a ghostly clanking of halyards on the masts.

But it was a good run, tried to push myself to pick up the pace a little bit. Next week I'm going to run for 4 and a half minutes before walking for a minute. I'm aiming to work up to running for 10 minutes without a break. I think I'm always going to take a minute's walking break, because I'm just a bit worried about my poor knees. It's taken me so long to get back into running without injuiry / pain, that I think I'm going to take it easy and just "waddle on" (as the Penguin says!)
