I havent been sleeping well lately ( busy life, lots of stress) and today was an early 5k on my schedule. I had arranged to virtually run it with a friend to spur me on.
My alarm went off at 5.45 and I just DID NOT WANT TO GET UP. I then texted to say it was a no go and I got nothing back... So I layed there having a huge debate with myself and also feeling bad about the no show. So I made myself. I counted to 30 and then got up, put my stuff on and went out. I loved it, I pushed and put my music on full blast and before I knew it I was home wondering if it had all been a dream!! I have to say I have been fine, I don't feel tired, my brain appears to be working and I have got lots done at work so far.... My friend almost didn't go when they got my text but we went for it. I did it in 29 mins so I am happy with that.
Having a virtual running bud helps in those duvet loving moments, and also no matter how much you dont want to do it, it will make you feel better!!

Next milestone- to conquer the treadmill. We dont get on and I am so scared of it and of people laughing at me in the gym ,but I need a fallback for winter training, any tips??
