Hail to all Ye faithful Bloggerettes!
I was fortunate enough for most of the C25K program to have been between jobs (I'm a freelancer) so I could commit 100% to the whole thing. Since starting a new short term gig, I've still managed to run three times per week but without the same energy and enthusiasm I had whilst conquering Laura and here training prog.
As someone on this forum once said to me "Any run is better than no run" and they are absolutely right. I am sure that the job I have right now has sucked away most of my energy for running, cos of the high stress levels I have to endure. That said - and I'm not moaning , honest! - I still feel GOOD after running my 5K in the early mornings when even the ducks haven't woken up yet.
But today I could "only" manage 4K and I found this frustrating. Where was the 5th K in me? Where on earth had it gone? I had a look but couldn't see it anywhere, so I walked the rest of the way home, sweating like a horse and legs feeling decidedly wobbly.
Ah well. A long soak in the jacuzzi seems to have bounced me back and I shall endeavour to conquer another 5K in two days time. I'm off to test ride a new scooter later and guess what the weather in London is supposed to be doing? Yep! Thunderous monsoon rain. I'd better wear my plastic trousers.....
