Cheese dreams suck

Ok, we had pizza last night. Rather a lot of pizza. I'm blaming that for the vivid and unpleasant dreams I had. I woke up half an hour ago crying - bizarrely I have a really strong urge to pull on my trainers and go for a run.

Bad timing - today is a rest day. I'll settle for a cuppa and a walk on the beach with the dog.

I did not expect this - the DESIRE to run. After such a short time of trying it too...I'm starting to understand why it's so hard to get my patients to rest if they're runners. This thing is addictive.

I'm surprised they haven't put a Government Health Warning on the programme. ;-) Or maybe we should rename this RA (Runners Anonymous). :D

But I agree totally. I always thought running had nothing to interest me, and I started this just as a means to an end. But now I'm slightly impatient at having a rest day between runs and soon, when I feel I'm fit enough, I think I'll be out there most mornings - it's such a great start to the day (as is a walk on the beach with the dog of course).


Pizza is rocket fuel for me for a run the next day! Well that's my excuse for shovelling it in on a Saturday night before my long Sunday run - all those valuable carbohydrates *cough* and er cheese and jalapeños etc etc.

And yes, running is addictive, I am 8 weeks pregnant and already worrying how I will cope without it when bump gets in the way and I have to stop.
