Running so I can eat cake

Going for 8k this morning - managed 8.5 due to using Runkeeper, measuring in miles and prompting every 10 minutes - happy with that. Had 2 weeks doing the 7k so wanted to step it up. Also feeling motivated due to Cardiff Bay food festival - off to stuff my face today without feeling too guilty!!

Actually really love getting up early - it’s such a pleasure feeling that I have the park to myself on a beautiful morning

Well done sarah65 enjoy your cake, my 8k this morning turned into 9 and we are going out for a meal tonight, so I might have earned a pudding!

Thanks I chose ice cream (and some bites of chocolate brownies, and fudge - I’ll have to run every day for a week to burn it off!) hope you enjoyed your pudding!

That's the way to do it! I've been known to eat a plate of pasta and a bag of donuts after a run. Mind you, I've gone past that phase now, thankfully ;)

I think our town food festival might be next weekend - it’s great to see the local restaurants showing what they can do.

I’m very food driven - useful feature to look out for when training dogs apparently

Well done Sarah, and I love the title of your post. I get up early to work, so getting up early to run, particularly in this heat is no bother, and I love being out early. I run so much better in the morning :) All the best reaching 10k.
