Week 1, Day 2 of the Couch to 5K programme.

Oddly enough, I travelled exactly the same distance (1.67 miles) at exactly the same average speed (5.01 mph) and pace (11 minutes 58 seconds per mile.)

The only difference between tonight’s workout and Monday’s is that tonight I only burned 201.3 calories, as opposed to 227.7.

Other than that, I can report that tonight was easier. How much of this is because I’m already getting used to running, and how much of it is because I had proper running equipment on tonight, I don’t know.

I can also state quite clearly that running is both easier and goes by quicker when you’re running to music that “sets the tempo” – tonight I was listening to Daft Punk’s soundtrack to Tron Legacy – the R3C0NF1GUR3D remixes.
