As you might know from recent posts, I am not feeling 100% at the moment, but am sticking to the programme because I will use any excuse to get out of doing anything, so being firm with myself off I go to run club.
No turn outs - too wet ahhhh! Now too late in the day to do my butterfly run, so do the quick local one. Always good to have a back up!
No iPod, sorry Laura, strange running without you, didn't want to risk it getting dropped in a puddle!
No run mates, just me to listen to my breathing, my footfalls!
5 minute warm up walk and I develop a bad headache, put it down to excuses get on with it!
5 minutes running and cannot get the breathing right think it was worse because I can hear it! Almost turn back home, am furious with myself, give myself a huge kick up the rear and get on with it!
Going quite well the rain is now easing off I am not getting splatted by traffic, thank you. I can see the half way point yay.
Turn around to run back, am quite pleased with how this is turning out, have had to slow down a little as the route out was a steeper incline than I was led to believe (or it felt like it), was going to cut the corner and therefore cut out the bit of a hill, another swift kick and up the hill I go! The only benefit to running uphill is the reward on the other side (downhill you go) breathing fine legs fine all is well with the world, turn a corner into raucous teenage girls fuelled up on whatever was making them idiots, haha I get the last laugh as they chase after me to have to give up out of breath ha! Make it home and the run wasn't actually too bad, definitely my worst but still ran 30 minutes and 2x 5 minute warm up walks just over 5K absolutely soaked and now of course it has stopped raining!
groan and roll on Wednesday, running with support is definitely easier, but look we have made all this progress that we can also do it on our own
