Right... so this week was a little bit hectic which meant my training did not follow the schedule to the T. I only managed two days of short runs, an intermediate spin class and a long run, which I did today :) I did 5 miles today and I felt good. I started off shaky as my headphones were giving my some problems. I got so fed up that I just took them out and ran with no music. That was really hard as I kept on hearing my own breathing.
So that´s yet another thing to buy, sports headphones. From the feedback I have read Sennheiser is the best brand and I particularly like this one. Phillips also seems have a pretty good headphone and is cheaper. You can see the Phillips here. I will try the Phillips first and the other for comparison. Watch this space......
On another note, I finally managed to get to Runners´Need to get gait analysis done. The guys in there were really good especially in explaining the process. After measuring my feet, I was asked to run on the treadmill for about a minute. The guy explained that I have quite a neutral run. My feet also land sideways but are still straight. So after trying a few options, I think the front runner will be the Brooks Defyance 2. Sigh!!! Its definitely going to be an investment.
I am hoping that this week will be more condusive to the training schedule but that´s looking grim so I will do what I can this week. Weigh in tomorrow so hopefully I can move away from the half pound loss.
