Poor notpheidippides has an infection and isn't well enough to run today. Bless him though for taking me to the park. I thought...Saturday ...lots of teenagers till np reminded me that they sleep till lunch time...whew! As I started running the hail began but I had already determined that come what may I was going to complete the run. The park was beautiful; lots of daffodils, and cherry blossom covering the paths as for a wedding. Only dog walkers and a couple of prams around. How often do dogs need walks I asked myself?
I thought it would be harder without np to accompany me but strangely it was better...just me and my thoughts. Can't wait for Monday now. It will be very early I might even arrive before the dogs!
I'm beginning to wonder whether I'm not pushing myself as hard as I should? Otherwise why should I get through this run without any appreciable discomfort? Laura talked about stitch....none. I don't ache anywhere either. When Laura said it's the last minute before the end I increased my speed a little because I thought I had some go left! What should I do? I keep in mind Greenlegs motto "slow and steady" but wonder if there's too slow and steady?
