OK, so I have it lucky that we are in the middle of summer here and it was a really great day yesterday. Pretty warm at about 32 degrees C or 90 degrees F, so I went up into the mountains about 1.50 hours drive away from where I lived to cool down and go for a run. Got there, and it wasn't any cooler but I ran about 2.50 KM from one village to the next, then ran another 2.50 km down to a lookout point (awesome view), stopped to get some water, check the time and then work out how to get back from where I started at the visitor centre and that was where I realized that I had to basically go back the way I came, or go along some dodgy cliff edge runs so I went that way as it was "quicker".
5 miles is getting to the edge of my stamina at the moment at the pace I am trying to run,and given that it was really hilly terrain by the time I got the back to where I started I was pretty tired, thirsty and I was really hungry. I ended up going over 10 miles
and am feeling it in my buttocks today
Walking is a bit tough, especially stairs or going up hill. Don't even get me started on sitting on the toilet
Julie & Horizon were talking about some bracelets that you can wear to measure distance, time, calories, splits etc and gave me the belowhttps://jawbone.com/up https://www.fitbit.com/forcehttp://www.nike.com/us/en_us/c/nikeplus-fuelband
I ended up staying with my iPhone and downloading an app called runkeeper which I think does pretty much what I need and it means I don't have to buy one of the bracelets or some new Nike shoes to make it work.
I am wondering what everyone else is up to on the exercise
