This morning I enjoyed a jog along the many cycle paths in north Edinburgh and Leith.
I started the new year with a new exercise routine, jogging a few times a week along some of the old railway paths that criss cross north Edinburgh’s streets, providing a hidden away peaceful and nature filled route along to Leith, or to the West and out the Queensferry.
I started with the excellent Couch to 5k podcast from BBC radio, which guided me through couch potato to 30minute plodder over the last three months. I now use the Nike+Run Club app which tracks my progress with live pace updates and GPS distance counters so I know exactly when I beat my PB like I did this morning 😉
And yes I know I am not going to break any real records, just keeping moving for the entire 5k is enough for me right now!!
