Apologies to those of you who are now bored of my daily reports but I do feel that without posting it might be too easy to give up - especially today when the gremlins were out in force.
Woke up wheezy and coughing and with that in between Christmas and New Year malaise where you don't know what day it is and think you might die if you have to eat anything ever again.
Still determined to be out I decided to run in a park I haven't ever run in and not even visited for ages.
Arrive at the car park and discover that you now have to pay to park and I only have a £10 note (emergency money in my arm band running thing). Discouraged I decide to head for Waterperry where the garden centre provides parking for a good range of runs. Get there and of course it's closed between Christmas and New Year.
At this point now more angry than determined I abandon the car at the side of the road and start an agitated warm up walk across a field where I know I can pick up a peaceful bridleway.
Podcast on and 10 minutes into running I feel great again 😊 - though don't run quite as far as I intended because I didn't have as much time as I originally started out with!
Busy day now getting daughter 1 packed off back to Uni after which I'm going to plan lovely running routes for the weekend.
