It had been a long weekend on call and a busy and stressful day at work, so I set off aiming to do wk7's required 25 minutes and to get home again.
I was looking forward to a hot bath, G&T and the Thai curry that was waiting for me at gnome and I felt like I'd earned it. But then it occurred to me that I could REALLY earn it . . .
So I ran 5k, without stopping. It took exactly 40 mins and felt good. The image of the bubbles, the clink of the ice cubes, the smell of the curry - it kept me going.
I'm doing the Race for Life in Kempton Park on Sunday, so am so pleased that I know I can do it without stopping, and now I 'm looking forward to rather than being apprehensive. I'm thinking maybe a shorter run on Wednesday and then a couple of good rest days and hopefully I'm good to go!
Happy running everyone!
