Wow...just wow...I feel well & truly loved...122 replies to my missing mojo post has left me feeling overwhelmed, all your wishes of encouragement & kindness, honesty & support have really got to me...I honestly have never felt anything like it...so Thank you from the bottom of my heart, I hope that whenever any one of you are going through a tough patch that my words of encouragement will help you along like every single comment on here has helped me...I'm grateful of all the virtual hugs too because HOW COLD IS IT TODAY?????? Which leads me onto my tale about today's run...I know, I know, I maybe should be taken a bit longer off & believe me, when the rain was lashing my face this morning that thought wasn't far from my mind...I made sure I had everything with me when I did the school run this morning so i could drive straight to my chosen route, fleecy jacket, headphones, phone sleeve...I had plugged my fitbit in to charge so called for it on my way passed...when I parked up at the side of the road the heavens opened....yes you're right, only having Mo & not Jo I wanted to go straight home, get my slippers on & light the fire, but I didn't, I went home & got my waterproof jacket thinking I might aswell go across to the park...yawn...no Bev, that's not what you planned thats boring & we are trying to find Jo so back to the chosen route it is. So off I went, 10 mins later parked back up, the rain & wind were vile but something inside me needed to get out, no pressure, no distance were the words from all of you in mind, just run this particular circuit BECAUSE YOU CAN....so I got out of the car & set off walking to warm up. Warm up? Not a chance this morning...by the time I started running my right cheek had been lashed good & proper and my thighs were numb, I'd decided to take Mr Smooth with me and did W6r2 10min run, 3 min walk then 10min run....I didnt walk i ran it all, I only covered 2.8kms in 23 mins but considering that Jo is still missing I dont think that's so bad. I can't tell you how soaked i was, put it this way, if id have travelled from leeds to London ontop of a wagon on the M1 I wouldnt have been as wet!!!!
Jancanrun is running around London looking for Jo as I think Mo arrived in the box that she sent me with some Mojo dust and a bottle of her delicious olive oil all the way from Italy!! How lucky am I??? I've had private messages too wishing me well & asking if there's anything they can do...you re all so so kind, you've made me cry & laugh with your comments & the way you've made me feel, all your comments & ideas wede going through my head while i was out so hopefully now I can change the way I think about my running & in a few weeks, or whenever Jo decides to come home maybe, as Bluebirdrunner suggested, I can start on the 10k plan again...gosh, running can be so intense!!! It's like when you fall in love with someone & you can't do without them...it's a proper love affair!!!
I hope you are all enjoying your running, if ever you have any doubts about your ability, come back to my mojo post because this is one I will refer to whenever I'm having a wobble & I am 100% sure that it will make you feel better...and further of you whose mojo is also awol...I will help you find it while I'm looking for Jo xxx
