Despite a long time faffing managed to get out about 10.30 this morning and as it was already 24 degrees, didn’t want to muck around any longer. Wore my new arm holder for my phone out for the first time today (mistake 1) and I should have turned my notifications off (mistake 2) first off - a distracting text, then an email. Spotify now playing my favourite 2018 songs, Strava started and I’m off, just as my phone holder slid down my arm and then those little pesky voices started, normally I would be so distracted, I’d give in to them and give up but NOT TODAY!
Today, injury woes banished and after running for 9 consecutive weeks 3 times a week in the hope that I could get that coveted Graduate 10 next to my name, it was time to try for 6k. Ran against the wind for the first 3k, it was so noisy in my ears and I missed a few Strava prompts but my music kept on and then home with the wind behind.
Lovely 6k done and as I started the cool down walk home and with impeccable timing, the glorious, stunningly beautiful voice of Nina Simone sang to me. “Birds flying high and the chorus:-
“Its a new dawn, its a new day”
Its a new life, for me yeah
And I’m feeling good”
Happy running everyone. 🤓
