I was really psyched up for my big run this morning - great weather, early start - zoomed through the warm up walk doing the " trust in the plan, trust in Laura, you can do it" mantra. Sprung like a gazelle into the running bit only to have my new mp3 player give up on me 90 seconds in!!!! Disaster!
Couldn't decide whether to:
A. Go home and do it again tomorrow?
B. Stop running and wrestle with the mp3 to see whether I could get it back going?
C. Carry on running under my own steam without the support of the music and most importantly, Laura?
D. Sit on the ground and weep with frustration?
Decided on option C (with option D a close second!) and ploughed on for about 45 minutes (or so it seemed!) definitely did more than 12 mins ( much less gazelle and more hippo by the end!) but with no Laura and no watch I could only guess as to how long it was. Soooooo frustrating!
I'm going to have to do it again on Saturday now, which will put me back a bit, but that's life I suppose. Sorry to rant on, but feel better now I've got it off my chest.
It'll serve me right for buying a cheap mp3 player I suppose!
